How our programme helps schools

Our programme has been designed with schools at the forefront. We are part of one of the largest UK-based education recruitment and training organisations and understand the difficulties schools are experiencing with recruitment and retention. We believe our innovative programmes are helping our partner schools overcome the recruitment and retention crisis.

The schools we work with feel the tangible benefit of increased recruitment and retention, creating loyalty amongst the staff that are enrolled on the programme and building a career in their schools. What’s more, it’s given schools and school leaders the ability to shape their new teachers to match the teaching ethos to their school.


Levy paying schools can use their digital apprenticeship account to pay for training for their trainee teachers via The Teacher Training Partnership. This minimises cost and is open to both existing staff or trainee teachers sourced via The Teacher Training Partnership.

Upskill route - qualify your unqualified staff

You can now offer a full university provided PGCE with QTS training programme for your degree-holding unqualified staff members, be it unqualified teachers, HLTA’s or TA’s.

By providing a full year-long PGCE with QTS course through a Level 6 teaching apprenticeship the trainee will not only be continually developing through the rigour and pedagogy of the PGCE course, but they will also continually be developing their skills in a classroom 5 days a week for 38 weeks of the academic year.

‘What if we don’t pay into the levy?’

For employers that do not currently pay any apprenticeship levy contributions, they can avail of the current co-funding scheme where the government will contribute 90/95% of the cost of an apprenticeship, meaning a full PGCE with QTS training course will cost as little as £460.

Subject shortage areas

We have a bespoke attraction method dedicated to the recruitment of trainee teachers in all secondary subject shortage areas. Using our bespoke funding model, we ensure that Science, English, Maths, Computing and DT degree qualified candidates are incentivised to train with us. 

Using The Teacher Training Partnership’s unique pre-teach programme you can be confident that the candidate is motivated, well rounded and the right fit for your school before they commence the formal PGCE programme.

Grow your own

Whether you are looking to upskill an existing member of staff via our apprenticeship route or recruit a new trainee teacher we give you the tools and support to grow your own ECT.

Shape your own

The trainee teacher will be working in your school full time. This is an excellent opportunity to shape their teaching philosophy to match your school’s ethos.

Increase retention

Recruitment and retention can be resolved as trainee teachers can be offered a role at the end of the programme. By then you know if they’re ready to embark on their NQT year.
