About the training provider
The Cambridge and Suffolk Schools Alliance (CASSA) is an alliance of primary, secondary and special schools and post-16 providers from across Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.
We work with over 80 partner schools in both rural and city contexts and we have an excellent track record of successfully training teachers. These schools have rich experience of working with some of the country’s leading Higher Education Institution (HEI) and SCITT (School Centre for Initial Teacher Training) providers. Each year the overwhelmingly majority of these trainees go on to work in local primary and secondary schools.
CASSA ITTs (Initial Trainee Teachers) have access to the highest quality training.
CASSA works in partnership with both Cambridge Teaching School Network SCITT and Suffolk & Norfolk SCITT and offers both salaried and non salaried primary and secondary routes. We have professional studies training centres in Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich; this local training provision, and being placed in one of over 80 schools, gives ITTs the ability to train close to home and manage competing demands. This flexibility and the quality of training means that our trainees qualify at the highest levels and start their careers ‘school ready’.

Training with disabilities and other needs
CASSA supports all trainees based on their individual needs. Recently this has included those with dyslexia, physical, hearing and visual impairments and mental health conditions. Plans are developed with trainees to ensure that they can fully access in centre training, operate effectively on school placement and complete written assignments.
CASSA has full disabled access as do all the schools in the partnership. However, applicants who would benefit from disabled access should let us know on their application so that they can be considered for placements at the most appropriate schools.
