About the training provider

Burton Morewood Academy has high performing partnerships with a large number of schools including Infant, Junior, Primary, Nursery and a special school as well as a College of FE and the University of Cumbria.

We are currently training our sixth cohort of trainees and are looking for ten to twelve dedicated individuals to sign up for our seventh.

Within our Alliance a number of our Institutions have achieved OFSTED gradings of Outstanding in their most recent inspection report and we have a long standing tradition of providing excellent training for student teachers. Our schools offer a diversity of experience and contexts including both rural and town settings and an outstanding all age special school for young people with severe and complex learning needs. Our outstanding reputation for innovative curriculum design, professional development, leadership and teaching is underpinned by strong student welfare and guidance systems. As a School Direct student teacher working with us you will have the opportunity to develop your professional skills, knowledge and understanding in a diverse, supportive and innovative setting.

We are confident that our rigorous selection procedures and commitment to providing the best possible training will recruit and develop teachers that our schools will want to employ as NQTs.

Our programme carries full PGCE accreditation with up to 60 Masters credits.

About the accredited body

Our Primary PGCE with QTS programme is run in partnership with the University of Cumbria. During this course, as well as based training, you will undertake two 30-credit masters level modules to gain a PGCE. They involve a total of 3 written assessments, one of which is a formative piece to support your academic development. The modules are taught by University of Cumbria lecturers who work closely with our school direct programme team to ensure that theory and practice are closely entwined to really inform your teaching and give you a useful toolkit to take forward in your career.

Training with disabilities and other needs

All our students have access to University of Cumbria support as well as that offered within our school direct alliance. Much of the university-based support is available online and electronically and so accessible at a distance.

During the first six years of our course we have worked closely with trainees to offer support and guidance. Schools within the Alliance are also extremely supportive and will work with us, in partnership, to ensure the best training and outcomes for all students.
