Initial Teacher Training
Through our programme of Initial Teacher Training, Taunton Teaching Alliance aims to draw in and retain the best graduates and strongest aspiring teachers to train in schools within the partnership, including in shortage subject areas.
Working with our partner ITT providers – the Mid-Somerset Consortium, Exeter University and the Somerset Primary SCIL (Somerset Centre for Integrated Learning) – we provide School Direct courses leading to PGCE where trainee teachers are nurtured and supported across our partner schools.
We also offer bespoke support and professional development for newly qualified teachers within our partnership.
