About the training provider
Trinity Teaching School Alliance and Huddersfield University have developed an innovative school-led teacher training programme for School Direct 2019. We are a large alliance of over 45 schools across West Yorkshire, offering rich opportunities for trainees to access the highest quality training in a diverse range of establishments including academies, church schools, schools with 6th forms, primary schools with early years provision, grammar schools, and schools with dedicated special needs provision.
Our School Direct programme has been created in partnership with leading practitioners from both the University and across the alliance, as well as subject specialists from our sister organisation White Rose Maths. We ensure a collaborative approach between all partners, led and quality assured by a team of experienced senior leaders, dedicated to providing
the very best training experience for our School Direct students. We have a strong focus on ensuring that our trainees are fully supported to develop their knowledge, skills and professional attributes in order to become outstanding and inspirational teachers.
A world-class education system requires world-class teachers and this unique programme sets out to address this challenge. Trinity Academy Halifax is the lead school - graded outstanding in all areas. As the Teaching School Alliance within Trinity MAT, we are dedicated to developing the teachers and educational leaders of the future.
