Train to Teach in Sheffield - Schools Direct
Five Rivers Teaching School Alliance is the lead school for Sheffield South East Learning Partnership (SSELP) ITT programme. SSELP is a collaboration of 18 schools working together to share and promote excellent standards and practice in primary education. All the schools in SSELP are situated in areas of high deprivation, with many pupils on free school meals and high levels of special educational need. Many of the schools are multi-cultural and have a significant number of children with English as an additional language. The profile of the school populations means that the schools in SSELP have developed strong inclusive practice that enables all children to participate fully.
Many pupils enter the schools with lower than average levels of attainment, but we have high aspirations for our children and have developed practice that enables them to achieve against the odds. Some SSELP schools secure attainment higher than national averages and progress across SSELP is generally good or better. The collaboration as a whole has a proven track record of improving outcomes.
If you are interested in finding out more about the SSELP Schools Direct offer, please visit their website or contact Five Rivers TSA for further information. http://sselp.net/school-direct.aspx
NQTs Awarding Body - Education Success Partners
Five Rivers Teaching School Alliance is registered as an Appropriate Body for the assessment of Newly Qualified Teachers. We work in partnership with Educational Success Partners Ltd (ESP) to offer Appropriate Body support to around 450 NQTs a year, providing a complete and comprehensive service to UK schools as well as British schools overseas.
An additional level of support (at no cost) for 2020/2021 has been added in order to help schools and their new recruits in the challenging times we all face with the global COVID-19 pandemic. We recognise the importance of NQT CPD to support the Induction year and have a well-established remote programme that will provide NQTs with access to training whatever the situation with restrictions travelling to venues and accessing face-to-face CPD. We are also mindful of the cost of CPD therefore want to support schools using our Induction service by providing our remote CPD package at no additional cost. Our dedicated and knowledgeable team are there to support NQTs through our personalised and supportive service.
