Inspiring Professional Journeys

Our partnership is built upon a combined commitment from all to ensuring that teachers access a high quality professional journey which begins before their teacher training programme starts and develops as their experience increases all the way through to them becoming school leaders. Our commitment is demonstrated by our delivery of school Leadership training through the broader Inspiring Leaders partnership which has now trained over 1900 school leaders since 2012. We are proud to report that some of our earliest SCITT trainees are now moving into middle and senior leadership positions within our schools which underpins the rationale of our partnership.

    I chose ILTT as I wanted to have 'in class' experience and training from people who are still working within the thick of school life and in the classroom. The training that we receive is current and useful, and I can see the benefits of it when using it in the classroom myself. My favourite part of the course is being able to work with the children in the classroom and gain first hand experience of becoming a teacher.
