At Pickwick Academy Trust we are delighted to be joining a new teacher training partnership that will be working across our region from September 2024. We are incredibly proud that two of our Pickwick schools will be the study sites for the North Wiltshire and South Wiltshire teacher training hubs operating as part of the ott-scitt network.
Through Pickwick Learning we have trained over 80 primary teachers, many of whom are working in our Trust and wider partnership schools. Our school-centred programme has always been highly regarded by schools and by our trainee teachers, helping to prepare them for the realities of teaching in the classroom. We have over 30 schools in our ITT partnership who have supported our programme through offering placements and expertise.
We are delighted that as part of this new partnership we will continue to be at the forefront of fantastic teacher training across Wiltshire and we will be involved in the delivery of a full range of primary and secondary teacher training courses including full-time and part-time options. We are committed to ensuring that everyone who trains with us has a fantastic experience in their placements. Our Pickwick schools and wider ITT network of schools are all committed to offering support and guidance to ensure we continue to train high-quality teachers to work in schools across the area.
If you are interested in becoming a teacher then we encourage you to find out more about our partnership, including reading the most recent Ofsted report.
