Carmel Teacher Training Partnership have been inspiring the next generation of teachers for over 17 years. Considered an Outstanding provider by Ofsted, they work with 10 lead schools throughout the North East of England, successfully training primary (5-11) and secondary (11-16) teachers in many subject areas. Our Lady Queen of Martyrs is proud to be the lead school for the Durham area.
There Initial Teacher Training takes candidates under the School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) and School Direct programmes and provides a great alternative to training through a university. Because training is school based, they provide practical, job based learning from the start. Through training in a schools, you are also much more likely to get a job at the end of your training. In fact, over 95% of our trainees go on to secure a permanent teaching role, the majority of them in their host schools.
