The training offered by the Ashmead School partnership is of the highest quality. It has two key strengths, which remain at the heart of what we do:
- A high percentage of the training is practical, enabling trainees to gain relevant experience in the classroom, either by observing outstanding teachers or by putting their learning into practice themselves under the careful guidance of experienced and supportive Teacher Tutors.
- The training programme is personalised. Fortnightly tutorials and personalised developmental targets ensure that the training is tailored to meet the individual needs of trainees so that outstanding progress is made by all.
There are three main elements to the training programme:
- School-based training
- Core training sessions
- University-led Learning (PGCE) through Birmingham City University.
