Why Train at St Bede's?

By choosing to do your training at St Bede’s you will be immersed in school life from the outset, interacting with students and learning first hand from outstanding teachers. We provide an innovative initial teacher training programme which will develop all aspects of your teaching repertoire and thoroughly prepare you for your NQT year. You will practise a broad range of skills in a bespoke training programme that will aim to develop you into an outstanding practitioner from the outset.

You will be allocated a subject mentor from our staff with vast experience to support you through the year. These outstanding classroom practitioners will introduce you to school life and help you to learn how to teach your subject and also provide you with regular feedback and guidance to improve.

St Bede’s works closely with Durham SCITT (School Centre Initial Teacher Training). We also have placements at our feeder Primary schools and Tanfield Secondary School. By choosing to train with St Bede’s, you will be amongst other enthusiastic and talented trainees as well as outstanding staff.
