  • School Direct with Everyone Learning Alliance, Tame River Educational Trust and University of Cumbria.
  • PGCE with Tame River Educational Trust and UMIST and MMU.
  • Teach First with Tame River Educational Trust and Teach First.

Our ITT pathway draws on national and international research in teacher training, providing a very high-quality experience with significant support at each stage.

Our teacher training programme offers you:

  • up to 100% school-based training

Steven Mosley – Testimonial:

Training within the TRET has been an incredible experience. At every moment I felt that I was supported by both staff and mentors who consistently put a lot of time and effort into delivering a bespoke course. My mentors were both full of great knowledge and insight but also guided me into being the best teacher I could be. I was equipped by the course to understand and provide my students with the best education and to equip every one of them with the skills they needed to excel in my course.
