About the training provider

Priestmead is the Lead School for ITT within the Harrow Teaching School Alliance.

The alliance is made up of Good and Outstanding schools - Harrow has just under 50% of all schools as Outstanding. We work together as a partnership, ensuring a consistency of approach, so all our trainees perform brilliantly - we also ensure you have a strong second placement and KS3 placement.

Unique to our programme is we offer a residential experience with a contrasting set of schools in the North of England, helping our trainees to see education in different localities.

Finally, although you are trainees, we call you our Associate Teachers!

Outstanding candidates are guaranteed NQT positions for the following September!

About the accredited body

Middlesex University provides an excellent academic programme focusing on reflective practice as well as developing strong subject knowledge. They hold Wednesday training sessions at their Hendon campus. Your allocated mentors also receive regular training to ensure we all work cohesively to enable you to achieve your best!

Training with disabilities and other needs

As part of our recruitment process, we ask candidates to let us know of any specific needs and disabilities and also any personal contexts which will enable us to best support you. All schools are committed to equal opportunities and are DDA compliant. Unfortunately, we do not offer a part-time training option.
