“Leaders’ ambitious vision for excellence and their aspirations for trainees are of the highest order”
“The quality of training is outstanding”
“Trainees are overwhelmingly positive about the quality of mentoring”
NELTA, with Beal High School as the lead school (part of the Beacon Multi-Academy Trust), was accredited by the Department for Education to deliver programmes of initial teacher training from September 2015 and can award Qualified Teacher Status. Outcomes for our most recent cohort of trainees (2020/21) include a high completion rate, with all but one trainees graded good or outstanding against the Teachers’ Standards by the end of the programme and excellent employment rates (98%) by September following the end of the course.
This is an innovative approach to teacher training with outstanding teachers and school leaders, with current and relevant experience, delivering a continually updated, CCF-based training programme which is highly supportive of the realities of the modern classroom.
NELTA is committed to delivering a comprehensive and bespoke training experience and supporting the development of the next generation of teachers and school leaders.
NELTA School Centred Initial Teacher Training (secondary)
As well as continuing to work with our University Partners (King’s College London and UCL) to offer teacher training, NELTA is also an accredited provider of initial teacher training (secondary).
NELTA SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) can recommend trainees for the award of Qualified Teacher Status.
The SCITT route is a school-based secondary training programme and our trainee teachers train alongside outstanding teachers in our partner schools.
As well as the school-based support from subject mentors there is also a team of dedicated tutors who will deliver training and support the school placement experience. This is an 11-16 training programme although there will be pre and post phase experience as part of the training.
