Support for Trainee Teachers


Our school is part of a growing number that are leading the way for ‘schools-led’ Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in Doncaster.

This is really important to us because it means that we can choose the very best candidates and develop them into qualified teachers. Being able to choose who and how we train helps us deliver the best outcomes for all of our children in Doncaster.

We are an active member of the Doncaster Teaching School Alliance – ‘Partners in Learning’ and we are currently seeking applicants to start training from September 2018.

The Alliance of schools works with the ‘Doncaster ITT Partnership’ (a Partnership of Doncaster schools and academies in our Teaching School Alliance and the Local Authority) as the accredited ITT Provider.

We would be very interested to hear from you if you are thinking of becoming a teacher, or if you know someone who is. We’re looking for people who have a full honours degree (or will have by next September); already have their English, Maths and Science GCSEs (at least a Grade C or equivalent); possess a passion for teaching and want to inspire young people to fulfil their potential.

We’d be delighted to meet with you for an informal discussion about the exciting teacher training opportunities available, so please contact the school to arrange a convenient time. We can also provide you with support and guidance on your application form and possibly offer you some experience in school if you feel that you’d like a ‘taster’ of what teaching would be like.

You’re invited to attend to our information event on Wed 8th Nov (please arrive for 4.30pm) at the Mary Woollett Centre, Danum Road, Doncaster, DN4 5HF.
