About us

Our excellent training is supported by a large partnership of more than 100 nurseries, primary, secondary and special schools and accredited by Anglia Ruskin University. Due to the outstanding reputation we hold locally for the provision of effective training, our trainees are among the first to gain employment each year, usually within partner schools.

We pride ourselves on offering excellent support, providing you with your own personal tutor during training and continuing support into your first year of teaching with our support team.

Training with one of the largest school-based primary and secondary teacher training providers in our region makes you part of our ‘Education Family’ along with hundreds of others who have gone before you!

Our Vision

We are a charity that trains teachers to be passionate, confident and secure in the knowledge that they can make the best decisions for the children in their care – in short, excellent teachers! We provide a nurturing and supportive environment in which you can train to become the kind of teacher who changes lives. Children and young people are at the centre of everything that we do and our graduates are making a significant positive contribution to their education in our schools.
