Personalised high-quality initial teacher training in Bradford

Westerton Partnership

Westerton Partnership, led by Westerton Primary Academy in Leeds, provides great places to train to teach and we believe the partnership of strong academic grounding and highly effective practical contexts is the key to success. The schools within the Partnership are committed to joint collaborative working and have a long history of delivering successful school based teacher training. We can tell you more during our free local briefing events.

The  Leeds Programmes, 3-7 & 5-11 are led by Westerton in close affiliation with Exceed SCITT. The schools within the Westerton Partnership offer diversity, enabling trainees to experience a range of schools in the partnership.

The schools within the Partnership all committed to their trainees’ progress and you will be chosen by the schools who will invest in you as an integral and important member of their staff team. Staff within the Partnership are our most valuable resource. Teachers are excellent practitioners and are keen to share professional skills, knowledge and practice with teachers of the future.

All trainees who successfully complete the Leeds Programme with us will be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status and will have the opportunity to gain a PGCE at Masters Level 7. This is an excellent springboard into the profession.

The training places available

Westerton Partnership offer the fee-funded/unsalaried training route in both the 3-7 and 5-11 age range. Applications for the Leeds Programmes, 3-7 & 5-11 can be made through either Westerton Partnership or Exceed SCITT.
