About the training provider

Your Neston Primary and Secondary ITT Partnership training is bespoke, personalised and provides many opportunities to work alongside experienced high quality mentors.

All of your year long programme will be delivered in partnership with the University of Chester. The vast majority of the training is school based, in one of our Neston schools, gaining first hand experiences of how children learn.

In addition to this, the course includes Academic Learning based at the university, which equates to 60 M level credits towards a Masters degree.

Expertise amongst our Neston cluster of schools will be utilised to deliver high quality training in the Core and Foundation Curriculum and Professional Development.

Your Neston School Direct ITT programme will provide you with QTS status, allowing you teach either Primary or Secondary school children, depending on your chosen route.
