Your Year with Yorkshire and Humber Teacher Training

In addition to the basic programme structure detailed below, you will be presented with educational training at the cutting edge of current practice.  We host guest speakers who are driving educational policy advancement and are strong advocates in the support of our trainees with a dedicated counsellor, well-being sessions and mental health training.


The Core Training Programme (CTP) delivers training in common areas of teaching Primary Phase education through full or part day training sessions.  Many of these are held in our partner primary schools with regional experts delivering the training.  Areas such as Phonics, Core Skills, Behaviour Management, Assessment and subject development are covered, all from the perspective of a Primary School Teacher.


We are determined to provide the best possible training available.  Therefore the core sessions are enhanced through the inclusion of specialist sessions covering topics such as Mental Health, the Prevent Agenda and guest lectures. Our programme also incorporates a PGCE delivered in conjunction with the University of Hull.



It will not be a surprise that as a School Centred Initial Teacher Training programme the vast majority of your time will be spent in schools on placement.  You will be guided across at least two contrasting placements by our expert mentors who will provide you with weekly targets to challenge your practice, and support to ensure that you develop rapidly as a teacher.  You will also have the opportunity to enrich your teaching with visits to alternative provision providers, Early Years or Secondary Phase education.
