About the training provider
Through our programme of Initial Teacher Training, Taunton Teaching Alliance aims to draw in and retain the best graduates and strongest aspiring teachers to train in schools within the partnership, including in shortage subject areas.
Working with our partner ITT providers – the Mid-Somerset Consortium, Exeter University and the Somerset Primary SCIL (Somerset Centre for Integrated Learning) – we provide School Direct courses leading to PGCE where trainee teachers are nurtured and supported across our partner schools.
Training with disabilities and other needs
The TTA welcomes all candidates and trainees with disabilities, health conditions, metal health conditions or learning difficulties and aims to support all candidates and trainees throughout the recruitment process and training course.
We support trainees with their specific learning needs to achieve their dream of becoming a teacher and will ensure appropriate support throughout the recruitment process and training year.
As an experienced provider of Initial Teacher Training, we are proud to have supported students with a variety of additional needs to become fantastic and successful teachers. We will aim to tailor our support to make sure that the course is both accessible and achievable.
We encourage all candidates/trainees with any disability or health conditions to discuss this with the TTA/MSC. If you wish to discuss any of the above, please contact the office.
We work closely with trainees and schools to ensure training is accessible and personalised to an individual's needs.
