Initial Teacher Training Programme at National Institute of Teaching

As an Associate College of the National Institute of Teaching (NIoT), we are delighted to deliver teacher training in partnership with them, and as your local provider, you also have the benefit of local expertise and context. The NIoT teacher training offers an all-encompassing, school-centred programme for aspiring teachers. From day one, you'll be in the classroom, experiencing hands-on learning. However, don't worry about being overwhelmed – our trainees receive weekly mentoring and centralised training.

You can also rest assured that you're participating in a programme designed by some of the most skilled teachers and leaders in the country, who have years of experience in teacher training. We know precisely what headteachers look for in new teachers, and we'll help you develop the skills you need to find an Early Career Teacher role.

As part of a national cohort,  you will belong to a network of like-minded individuals across the country. However your training and placements will take place at our schools across Leicestershire so you're never too far away from home.

NIoT works in partnership with the University of Birmingham which is the validating university and has responsibility for awarding the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) element of the programme.
