About the training provider
The Northworthy Alliance is a fantastic place to work and train with an excellent reputation for teacher training. We provide bespoke school based training in partnership with the University of Derby. Our Alliance has a straightforward, but powerful vision – ‘Nurture, Challenge, Aspire'.
We have a strong record in training teachers; last year 94% of our trainees completed the year as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ teachers and all gained employment to start in September. Many of our trainees have secured employment in the local area, with 59% undertaking their NQT year at an Alliance school (2018/19).
You would spend most of the programme in a main placement school, where you gradually take on classes, supported by an experienced mentor and the school coordinator. You are also allocated a Subject Specialist Expert, who leads sessions on the best approaches to teaching your subject. The weekly training day alternates between the university and alliance hub base at Long Eaton; the perfect blend of academic rigour and practical classroom practice.
We offer a range of school placement experiences across our alliance in Derby City and South Derbyshire. The schools vary in size and student profile, enabling us to match you with the right school. We also offer contrasting and enhanced placements, so that you have a rounded experience, such as teaching in alternative provision, primary, SEN schools and even overseas!
