Train to Teach with the Rose Learning Trust

The trust works in partnership with Doncaster ITT to provide high quality initial teacher training based in our schools.  

The Doncaster ITT Partnership is the ONLY Accredited Initial Teacher Training (ITT) Provider in Doncaster – one of only 5 in the whole of South Yorkshire.

And, according to ‘The Good Teacher Training Guide (2017)‘ Doncaster ITT Primary training has the 2nd highest rated ‘Overall Score’ for an accredited ITT Provider in the Yorkshire & Humber Region.

Doncaster ITT Partnership’s three postgraduate ITT programmes:

School Direct
1. Salaried – Trainees are employed by a school as unqualified teachers while they train
2. Tuition-fee – Student teachers based in schools.

School Centred ITT
3. SCITT – A tuition-fee paying programme with student teachers based in schools.

For further information on each of these training programmes and to check the current application situation, go to School-based ITT.

The Partnership doesn’t differentiate between SCITT & School Direct trainee teachers, as Partner schools share the same passion and vision when selecting and training future teachers for Doncaster. Students learn alongside each other regardless of which programme they are on, receiving the same levels of support and training, delivered for and by schools working collaboratively. As a genuinely schools-based provider, we can do this as our schools are not just notionally ‘in partnership’ with an ITT provider they ARE the Partnership.
