About the training provider
The North West Kent Teaching School Alliance (NWKTSA) is a vibrant teaching school which works collaboratively to enable schools in the community to make improvements in the quality of teaching, leadership and pupil attainment. In the Dartford area and beyond, we provide Initial Teacher Training, School-to-School Support and Continued Professional Development.
The alliance has been working in partnership with Kent and Medway Training (KMT) for many years to ensure that we meet the needs of schools in our community. We provide excellent-quality teacher training to ensure our pupils are taught by the best educators. This partnership has helped to nurture huge numbers of successful teachers, many of whom are now progressing into school management.
The alliance covers four secondary schools, eleven primary schools and is growing. This variety of settings provides our trainees with opportunities to work in different educational environments. With KMT, you have a Home school where you will be working for most of the year; however, you are also provided with a contrasting placement to allow you to widen your experience and develop your teaching skills in a variety of school contexts.
At the NWKTSA, we welcome candidates from a variety of backgrounds who are dedicated people and wish to become inspirational classroom teachers. The training is delivered by a team of experienced practitioners. There are several layers of support available within KMT and schools. The combination of high quality support and training justifies the excellent success rates in both passing the course and gaining employment.
