Initial Teacher Training

Initial Teacher Training (ITT) provision at Chorlton High School has been rated as excellent and outstanding by the Universities with whom we regularly work and by the trainees experiencing teaching here for the first time.

Our programme of training is extensive and enables trainees to access all aspects of being a professional teacher. We help a large number of trainees to gain experience in the classroom and we ensure that all trainees make progress during their time at Chorlton High. Our expert mentors (100% were rated as good or outstanding by trainees) and Teaching School support team work to ensure that all trainees have the most productive placements possible.

ITT weekly training sessions and after school workshops are open to all trainees on placements at other local schools. These are well attended as we offer trainees additional support, training on missing standards and the opportunity to network with other trainees.
