Our Amazing Schools

Our SCITT courses involve trainees spending a larger proportion of their time learning the craft ‘on the job’ with the support of some of the best teachers in the country. ILTT currently has three Outstanding Partnerships as partners of our SCITT provision which includes two Nationally designated Teaching School Hubs:

Discovery Trust – Leicestershire & Rutland – Primary Courses

Flying High Futures – Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire – Primary Courses

Redhill Teaching Hub – Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Northampton & Lincolnshire – Secondary Courses

Our partnerships have well established wider networks of over 200 Primary, Secondary and SEND schools across the East Midlands where you could be placed for your teacher training year. The strength, experience and capacity of our schools makes our partnership the success that it is.

Our Children Deserve the Best

Our partnership shares a combined belief that every child deserves an outstanding education and this begins with an outstanding teacher. ILTT strives to provide the highest quality training and development experiences for all our trainees in order to provide those outstanding, child-centred teachers and leaders of the future.

Training the Best Teachers for the System

Our SCITT leaders work tirelessly to ensure that all trainees get a high quality, personalised experienced and excellent support in the early stages of their career. We have a combined belief that as a Teacher Training Partnership we are should provide the best possible teachers for schools in East Midlands and our schools employ those who excel during the training year into our partnerships. We know that brilliant teachers make a huge impact upon a pupil’s outcomes which underpins our passion for training teachers to be the best they can be.

Inspiring Professional Journeys

Our partnership is built upon a combined commitment from all to ensuring that teachers access a high quality professional journey which begins before their teacher training programme starts and develops as their experience increases all the way through to them becoming school leaders. Our commitment is demonstrated by our delivery of school Leadership training through the broader Inspiring Leaders partnership which has now trained over 1900 school leaders since 2012. We are proud to report that some of our earliest SCITT trainees are now moving into middle and senior leadership positions within our schools which underpins the rationale of our partnership.

Excellent University Partnerships

To provide our trainees with Masters Level Training experience we have developed close working partnerships with Nottingham Trent University and The University of Leicester both of whom work with our leaders and trainees to provide excellent research informed PGCE study options. All of our trainees are provided with access to PGCE programmes which is dovetailed into our SCITT taught programme. Many of our trainees pass with up to 60 MA level credits with some moving onto achieve their full MA in Education following the completion of the course.
