About the training provider
WHO ARE WE?
We are a large alliance of 60 schools: nurseries, primaries, special needs, secondaries, sixth forms; faith and non-faith, maintained schools, independent schools and free schools. We have formal partnership arrangements with three universities.
Most of our schools are in Hammersmith & Fulham and Kensington & Chelsea, but we also have schools in Westminster; Richmond; Ealing, Hounslow, Hillingdon and Southwark.
The central Teaching School Office for WLTSA is based at Sacred Heart High School, in Hammersmith.
OUR APPROACH TO TRAINEE RECRUITMENT
We pride ourselves in the support that we provide potential applicants and in the speed of our shortlisting. We have a detailed website which is a good place to start. We also hold fortnightly information sessions to explain the qualifications; routes into teaching; finance; and how to secure a place!
‘That’s the first time that I have ever properly understood it all. Brilliant!’ Applicant 2018.
The Teaching School Office is staffed full time with experts to talk to on the phone.
You choose the schools when you apply. If you perform well but fail to get a place at your preferred school, we continue to work with you, recommending you to other WLTSA schools of your choice rather than rejecting you.
We place significant emphasis on getting a good fit between trainee and school because we are all keenly focused on recruitment for qualified teachers in our alliance schools the following year.
