Did you know that we are a vital part of the North East Schools Teaching Alliance – NESTA? This group consists of ourselves, Nunthorpe Primary Academy, Chandlers Ridge Primary, Normanby Primary, Ormesby Primary and Skelton Primary plus Nunthorpe Acadamy as the lead Teaching School. We will be working closely together in order to help raise the standards of teaching and learning across the area to benefit the young people of the North East.
One of our key areas of work will be to support the training of new teachers with a view to employing them within the alliance once their training has been successfully completed. We are recruiting to fill these School Direct Initial Teacher Training (ITT) placements now! There are a number of Primary placements plus Secondary placements in English, Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Geography, MFL and History. NESTA is working with Northumbria University and successful candidates will gain a PGCE and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
Applications are made through the UCAS website and further information and guidance is available on www.ucas.com. Additional information can be found on the following sites: www.education.gov.uk/get-into-teaching, www.northumbria.ac.uk and www.nesta.education
If you have any questions please contact Nicki Smith, Director of NESTA, at email@example.com who will be more than happy to meet with you and answer any question you may have.
