Our ITT programme is provided alongside e-Qualitas and the Primary Catholic Partnership (PCP) for both Catholic and non-Catholic students. Trainees will have the opportunity to teach in a wide variety of schools and gain QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) and a PGCE (from Edge Hill College). Each trainee will be provided with a bespoke training package which will cater for their needs.
The CTSA ITT programme will include training events organised by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth. These events will benefit both Catholic and Non-Catholic trainees as they underpin the ethos and values of our Alliance.
