This means we want the children in our academies to have the very best teaching possible and training the next generation of teachers is a key part of our model of school improvement.

See below what some of our ITT alumni say about their experience of training to teach in a NET academy:

I have thoroughly enjoyed my ITT year at Northern Education Trust. I have been supported by such an amazing department.

I would like to thank the staff at Northern Education Trust for such an amazing ITT experience.

My mentor has been my go to person for so many things during my ITT.  It has been hugely beneficial to have someone not only explain procedures but also put them into perspective at the same time.

The mentor support been exceptional; the whole department is friendly and supportive.
