About the training provider

The Valley Teaching School Alliance, in partnership with Kingston University, provides bespoke, school-based teacher training with exceptional levels of support and guidance for all our trainees. We are one of the only teaching school alliances who offer a PGCE with QTS as the accreditation for all school direct students, whether salaried or fee-paying trainees and who base their students in school for the entirety of the academic year. We create an environment in which staff, pupils and trainee teachers all feel valued and supported and this leads to a culture of enthusiasm, commitment and outstanding achievement.

Our alliance of schools is led by Chipstead Valley Primary School and comprises a mixture of large and small, urban and rural, special and mainstream, and both secondary and primary schools. We provide a unique opportunity to experience a diverse and contrasting range of teaching and training experiences across our local area.

Our outstanding practitioners have a proven track record in training and professional development and all our trainees receive the highest level of continual support throughout their training. This covers all aspects of teaching life including behaviour management skills, planning and assessment, subject knowledge, professional enrichment, SEND, inclusion, pastoral care and a wide range of pedagogy. All students have the opportunity to work closely with an experienced, trained mentor and will become part of the school ethos from the first day of entry.

100% of students we have trained agreed that if they were to do it again, it would be with us!

Training with disabilities and other needs

Two of our alliance schools have Enhanced Learning Provision Units (ELPs) for pupils on site, which means that we have full accessibility for those with physical disabilities (ramps, wheelchair access, refuge areas, lifts etc).

We can provide modified materials for those with dyslexia or visual impairments and are happy to support all other disabilities in any way necessary. Please contact us to discuss the needs you would have and we can discuss how we can provide you with tailored, specific support.
