School Centred Initial Teacher Training

Notre Dame High School was one of the first schools to become a National Teaching School in 2011. There are now over 600 teaching schools nationally and 7 in Sheffield who have a system leading role to help lead the education system. They play a big role in the training of new teachers alongside Universities, give continuing development to serving teachers and to support improving schools and do educational research.

Notre Dame is the first teaching school in the region to achieve full accreditation to train teachers and now, alongside the 2 universities, is the 3rd accredited provider of graduate teacher training in Sheffield.

We train graduates on a one year school based programme to be qualified teachers working with a partnership of local schools both primary and secondary. We train in all the main secondary subjects as well as a general primary qualification.

It is a real community endeavour. The trainers are all serving outstanding teachers from the schools who take the trainees and it's great to see how many of the trainees come from within the school community. This year we have ex students, parents and even school governors on the programme and the good news is the community angle continues beyond qualification. Many of our recent trainees now have teaching jobs in our schools.

If you would like to find out more about teaching as a career, what our course is like, the costs and funding options and ask questions please come to one of our open afternoons listed on the SCITT website www.sheffieldSCITT.org.uk and for news follow us on twitter @sheffieldSCITT.
