Your school and Initial Teacher Training...Get involved and reap the benefits!

Saltaire Primary School:  Choosing your ITT provider 

Saltaire Primary School has a well-established history of engaging with Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programmes. This involvement has enabled them to identify and cultivate teaching talent within their own staff, successfully transitioning capable individuals from support roles to qualified teaching positions. A notable example of this is Chris Evans, who began his career at Saltaire Primary School as a Learning Mentor. He was then given a salaried opportunity to train with a local ITT provider, eventually becoming a class teacher and progressing to the role of Deputy Headteacher.

The benefits of such engagement are significant. Headteacher Rob Whitehead emphasises the advantages: recruitment of individuals who are already aligned with the school's vision and values, the opportunity to enrich the careers of experienced teachers through mentoring roles, and an overall increase in the school's capacity.
