We are a partner of GORSE SCITT (formerly Leeds Teaching School Alliance) which offers a dynamic route into teaching, providing high quality Initial Teacher Training around Leeds. New entrants to the teaching profession are able to train directly with the SCITT in schools within The GORSE Academies Trust and also in partner schools in the local area.
The trust has an outstanding record of recruiting trainees from its programme to newly qualified teaching positions within its schools and graduates from the SCITT are in high demand in schools outside of the Alliance.
As a new college we have been particularly pleased to recruit from the SCITT tremendous expertise in Physics, English, Art, Music and Social Science. The quality of the NQTS we have recruited has meant they have “hit the ground running”, delivering excellent, academic teaching to our students from their first days with us. Trainees on both enhancement and placement with us have also richly contributed to the wider work of the college.
