Teaching is, undoubtedly, one of the most rewarding vocations and the Emmanuel Teacher Training Partnership (ETTP) provides an excellent start to a career in teaching. We believe there is a great deal to celebrate within the profession and we are devoted to making a difference in the lives of young people. Through our commitment to train passionate highly-motivated experts, we ensure that the most talented teachers will serve our children for generations to come. We offer superb Initial Teacher Training (ITT) to graduates and career changers wanting to join the teaching profession. Schools within the alliance have a reputation for outstanding leaders and inspirational teachers who enable students to achieve their personal best and exceed expectations. We believe that the best place to train is in the classroom; we give trainee teachers the opportunity to be at the heart of school life from the very first day of the academic year, where they will be fully supported by classroom teachers, mentors and professional tutors throughout their training.

ETTP and their partners have more than twenty years’ experience in school-led ITT, working with a range of universities across the country. School Direct is a training course which blends together in-school training with research-led practice undertaken at universities. Our School Direct programme, which started in September 2013, allows high calibre trainee teachers to achieve qualified teacher status (QTS) and a PGCE at Masters Level with Newcastle University; we have worked with this institution for many years and have developed strong relationships which ensure that all of our trainees’ training needs are met.
