School Direct trainee teachers complete training
On June 28th, Harton’s School Direct trainee teachers’ completed their training year. Our primary phase trainees have been trained, in the main, by our wonderful colleagues at Mortimer Primary, ably supported by Northumbria and Sunderland Universities, the two PGCE awarding bodies. Our secondary phase trainees have been trained in a long-standing partnership between the Harton Teaching School Alliance and the Carmel Teacher Training Partnership. We would like to take this moment to reflect upon the enormous efforts of all our partner schools’ colleagues who have enabled our 25 trainee teachers to successfully graduate from the programme. There are too many individual schools and members of staff to name, but ‘outstanding work’, one and all! Good luck to the Class of 2019 – we wish you well in your future teaching careers!
Preparations are now finalised for next year’s trainee teachers. The cohort has grown to 32 trainees across the primary and secondary phases, and we are looking forward to getting started in September!
