The Academies within the Sussex Learning Trust have considerable experience in training teachers and have been doing so successfully for many years. We are delighted and proud that so many of the teachers we have trained now work in our schools and other local schools.
From September 2022 our teacher training capacity and the breadth of experience offered will be enhanced through our new partnership with GLF, the Teaching School Hub for West Sussex. This partnership offers SLT the opportunity to deliver GLF’s highly regarded School Centered Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) in our locality. Their excellent programme leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and is exclusively school based training.
Our focus is local and the overarching aim of the SLT is to provide the highest possible educational opportunities for the children in our area and we strive to achieve that by forming partnerships for the benefit of all our children.
We therefore need to recruit and train great teachers and we do that through our very experienced and highly professional team of Induction tutors, mentors, school leaders and fellow professionals. Our training is thorough and of a high standard but it is also very supportive and aligned to individual need and circumstance.
Teacher training is hard work but it is also fun and deeply rewarding and enjoyable. This is because teachers really can make an impact on a child, everyday is different and we frequently engage in topics/subjects/activities that we love.
In addition we now have the wealth of support, experience and opportunity that GLF affords us alongside the passion, comradery and commitment of our own colleagues.
General information about the programmes can be found on the GLF website.
