NTTP – Why train with us?
The Northampton Teacher Training Partnership is a long established School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) provider based in Northamptonshire. The vision of our SCITT is to provide high quality teachers to meet the needs of our local schools whether part of our partnership or not. All Partnership schools are state secondary schools and some include 6th forms. All are at least Ofsted grade 3 and many of these schools are grade 1. All partnership schools offer a wide range of different experiences for our trainees.
You will be based at Northampton School for Boys, an Ofsted outstanding school (Nov 2014) with excellent facilities, a Teaching school from 2012 and the Lead School of the Partnership. NSB was formerly a DCSF Designated Technology College and held both the Sportsmark Gold and Artsmark Silver awards.
We offer a one year full time secondary (11-16) teacher training course so at the end of the training year, trainees with the Partnership will obtain the dual awards of PGCE and QTS if they successfully pass both qualifications. Our current post graduate qualification is validated by Edge Hill University however, we are in the process of changing this to another Higher Education provider for September 2017.
We encourage applications from all spheres of the community regardless of age, race, disability, religion and gender. The vast majority of trainees who successfully achieve both QTS and an academic award, gain employment in local schools, which is a huge strength of the partnership.
We also work with the University of Northampton in offering a 1 year primary PGCE. This program is based predominantly at the University of Northampton.
