Initial Teacher Training (ITT)
Our initial teacher training (ITT) programme offers high-quality, practical training in Cornwall.
As a large multi-academy trust of 36 primary schools, we are proud to be able to offer teacher training that is supportive, research-informed and has a proven track record of success. We have been training teachers for several years now and all of our past trainees have secured employment subsequently as Early Career Teachers – and almost all of our past trainees continue to work in Aspire schools.
We are really passionate about professional development and very much see our teacher training courses as a way of ‘growing our own’ future teachers, which is why we feel so invested in our trainees.
We work in partnership with Cornwall SCITT to deliver our courses, meaning our trainees have access to their excellent training and skilled tutors, as well as quality support, experience and training with our own teachers and experts.
We have a select group of trainees on our courses each year who enjoy being part of a close-knit group. We really get to know each and every one of our trainees, and because we have smaller cohort numbers, it means we are able to tailor our support and get the best for everyone.
