More about us

Our Partnership was formed in 2002 to help Doncaster schools recruit, train and retain qualified teachers through ‘home-grown’ schools-based training programmes. Since then the Partnership has trained hundreds of Primary & Secondary teachers. Most chose to stay on to teach in Doncaster, often in their training school. Many have secured senior management positions and some are now responsible for coordinating and delivering teacher training in their own schools.

We believe that our ‘model’ of teacher training works because the Partnership is more than just the sum of its parts: the Local Authority (Doncaster Council), local schools, academies and the University of Hull - it is a genuine Partnership of people who passionately believe that teacher training can and should be delivered with the student at the very heart of why and how we deliver training.

Doncaster ITT Partnership’s postgraduate ITT programmes:
School Direct

  1. Salaried – Trainees are employed by a school as unqualified teachers while they train.
  2. Tuition-fee – Student teachers based in schools.

School Centred ITT

  1. SCITT – A tuition-fee paying programme with student teachers based in schools.

The Partnership doesn’t differentiate between SCITT & School Direct trainee teachers, as Partner schools share the same passion and vision when selecting and training future teachers for Doncaster. Students learn alongside each other regardless of which programme they are on, receiving the same levels of support and training, delivered for and by schools working collaboratively. As a genuinely schools-based provider, we can do this as our schools are not just notionally ‘in partnership’ with an ITT provider they ARE the Partnership.

We always try to keep all of our information up to date, but things change and so if you see something that isn’t quite correct on this site, we would appreciate you letting us know.

Good luck with your application!
