Support for schools

Saffron Teaching School Hub would like to thank our local schools for their continued commitment to Initial Teacher Training. We have been so impressed with schools’ engagement and support for ITT during the last two turbulent years - trainees have been welcomed in schools and well-supported by their mentors.

As a Teaching School Hub we strive to support recruitment and retention of trainee teachers for our region. Headteachers’ commitment to ITT is vital.

A training school is a stronger school, and through collaboration on ITT, we can work together on ensuring we have high quality teachers in our local schools. Schools working with ITT providers strengthens local teacher supply and gives fantastic opportunities for teaching staff to develop professionally as teacher educators, such as mentors, subject leads and in senior ITT roles.

We have produced a brochure summarising the ITT provision in the Saffron TS Hub area in order to help schools who would like to engage in ITT make informed choices about their next steps. The brochure outlines what ITT providers can offer potential partnership schools and lists contacts for Headteachers who are interested in further discussions with particular ITT providers.

In this changing landscape for the Initial Teacher Training, we hope this brochure gives Headteachers the information they need about current ITT providers and what they can offer potential partnership schools.

If you are interested in having further discussions about engaging more/differently in Initial Teacher Training, please contact Angela Rodda (Saffron TS Hub ITT Lead) at  and we will follow this up with you.
