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. Most of the Partnership schools are state secondary schools and some include 6th forms. We work with a full range of schools including those in challenging socio-economic circumstances and those judged as requires improvement. As a result all our trainees are highly prepared for employment at the end of the training year. For a full list of our current partner schools please click here.
Centre based training takes place 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. From September 2017 our post graduate qualification is validated by Newman University who have an established reputation for producing quality teachers.
We encourage applications from all spheres of the community regardless of age, race, disability, religion and gender. Almost all trainees who successfully achieve both QTS and PGCE, 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.
