Embark on your teaching career with Teach Kent and Medway
School Led Intial Teacher Training.
It is a key national priority that schools should play a greater role in all aspects of initial teacher training (ITT). Teaching School Alliances are engaging with partner schools and accredited providers to develop new strategies to attract high quality trainees and set them on a journey to becoming an outstanding teacher.
The School Direct route creates some exciting opportunities for schools to shape the future of ITT and to support the development of teachers from their first point of entry into the profession.
Teaching Schools in Kent and Medway have secured, on behalf of their Alliances, a significant number of trainee places through School Direct. This process has created strong collaborative links between schools, often across phases and types of schools. It has also forged new relationships between schools and accredited ITT providers, both HEIs and School Centered Initial Teacher Training providers (SCITT).
