About the training provider

Everything we do in our schools is about giving children a high quality education. We celebrate the fact that all children are unique and we have high aspirations for all their futures. At the L.E.A.D. Teaching School Alliance we are committed to high quality training that impacts on the learning experiences of every child’s education.

We work closely with the University of Nottingham to design and develop an innovative Initial Teacher Training programme linked with our specialism of teaching in a variety of educational settings. All trainee teachers within our alliance meet half termly to engage with our curriculum, delivered by outstanding practitioners from our schools. This is an opportunity for you to consider your development as a teacher within the urban context you’re training in; past trainees have found these sessions invaluable.

As a trainee teacher in our alliance you’ll learn from the best teachers, supported by a culture of coaching and mentoring. All trainee teachers observe outstanding teaching and get to work alongside the best teachers in an apprenticeship role.

About the accredited body

The University of Nottingham has been involved in teacher education for over 120 years, our postgraduate Initial Teacher Education provision is one of the largest in the country.

University tutors working with our trainees were successful and innovative teachers in schools and are now experienced teacher educators, committed to developing the next generation of teachers.

We have a strong emphasis on emotional wellbeing, supporting our beginning teachers to develop their own identities, take ownership of their own professional development and embed work ethics that enable them to thrive and enjoy teaching as a profession.

Training with disabilities and other needs

The LEAD TSA has a duty to do everything it reasonable can to find out if trainees have a disability (whether it is called a disability or dyslexia or mental health difficulty or long-term medical condition). In that way we can make sure that students are offered the support they need to successfully access the programme. For some trainees, declaring a disability is straightforward, perhaps because their disability is plain to see, or because they are used to the systems involved. For other students, perhaps because their disability is hidden (impaired hearing, for example) or carries a social stigma (such as a mental health difficulty), or because it is new for the trainee concerned, declaring a disability feels much more risky. We all need to make it as simple as possible for students to disclose information which will enable us to support them well.

The University of Nottingham is committed to creating an inclusive and equitable teaching and learning environment and we work closely with our partnership schools to ensure that any student who has a specific need is supported to thrive as a beginning teacher.

The University of Nottingham have a wide range of facilities to meet the needs of students with special needs and disabilities. The School of Education has a dedicated Welfare Officer who works with students to ensure they access all available support from the University but also to support with any issues that specifically relate to being a student teacher.
