About the training provider

St Mark’s teaching school partnership is an exciting place to work and learn. It provides a unique school based learning opportunity in partnership with the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex. This is an innovative partnership of six schools led by the outstanding St Marks Church of England Primary. The vision for our partnership is “To open a door to teaching and learning that will inspire the teachers of the future to be able to work collaboratively and creatively, and to have a passion to enable the pupils in their care to develop holistically to their full potential.”

We recognise how much enthusiasm and energy trainees bring to our schools. They give us an opportunity to share good practice and to learn with them. Our staff are trained in, and enjoy, coaching and developing, the next generation of teachers so that they can inspire our children.

Our partnership of schools is led by St Marks Teaching School and comprises of four village primaries and a large urban primary with an ASD facility.

The children across our schools are at the heart of everything we do. They are happy, well- motivated and they love learning. Both staff and children believe everyone matters, everyone helps to enable everyone to succeed.

Our staff are our most valuable resource, and have a proven track record in training and professional development. Our teachers are excellent practitioners who are eager to share their knowledge and skills and work alongside the next generation of teachers

About the accredited body

Our partnership seeks to promote excellence through sustained high quality provision and outcomes for trainees. The partnership works collaboratively with local schools and academies who are strongly engaged in the strategic direction and day to day delivery of the programme. Trainees have a school based experience across the year and evidence based training. The training is delivered by inspiring practitioners and works alongside the school experience. The partnership has an aspiration that all trainees become excellent teachers serving children and young people; it strives to ensure that trainees are prepared for teaching and can be an asset to the profession.

Training with disabilities and other needs

With partnership schools, the programme will consider reasonable adjustments that could assist disabled trainees with access to, or the use of, training opportunities both at training venues and at partnership schools.

We take every possible step to ensure that applicants and trainees completing the programme are treated fairly and given equal opportunity and support appropriate to their needs.

The programme, in conjunction with the partnership schools, will at all times have due regard to the Equality Act 2010 and Special Educational Needs and Disablilty Act 2001.
