About the training provider

Who are we?

The Endeavour Teaching School Alliance (ETSA) is a vibrant partnership of schools who are passionate about nurturing talented individuals to become outstanding Primary School teachers.

Our diverse and expanding alliance currently has 16 schools across London and the West Midlands. Our teacher training is in partnership with two outstanding Universities: UCL Institute of Education and The University of Derby.

Our success:

Our trainees are successful; over the last 5 years, 100% of our School Direct trainees were graded good or outstanding at the end of the course. We provide comprehensive training to our School Direct mentors to enable you to get the best possible support. This is complemented by the practical training you will receive from us, led by outstanding classroom teachers and experts in their field. Previous trainees have 'loved' our 'on the job training' and the 'strong relationships' they built with our team.

Interview process:

Shortlisted candidates attend an interview at our lead school which consists of:

  • Child centred activity
  • Maths and English assessments
  • Presentation
  • Interview


No matter which partner school in the Endeavour Teaching School Alliance you apply to, you will be a valued member of our staff and part of our school community. You will have personalised support from an experienced class mentor, a senior leader and our Teaching School hub lead. Your classroom practice will be enhanced by our comprehensive training programme, led by outstanding teachers across our alliance.
