Ormiston Academies Trust is set to launch a new teacher training campus in Ipswich, in a bid to educate the next generation of teachers.

Delivered in partnership with the National Institute of Teaching (NIoT), the new Ormiston Teacher Training (OTT) programme will begin in September.

Based at the Ormiston Endeavour Academy, the programme will deliver training centred on fully immersive professional learning and teaching practice, benefitting from hands-on experience in schools and weekly central training at the Ipswich site.

Kaye Patrick, director of initial teacher training, Ormiston Academies Trust, said: “We are extremely excited to be launching our new campus in Suffolk, which will enable us to deliver this new national scheme in partnership with the National Institute of Teaching.

"As a Trust, we have long been committed to developing and nurturing teaching talent, and ensuring that they have immediate access to local experts and training opportunities.

“We are really looking forward to welcoming prospective trainees, and partner schools, to the programme and seeing the positive impact that this will have for students and colleagues across our trust and other schools.

"We would encourage those interested in applying to do so at the earliest opportunity.”

By the end of their training, students will have the chance to achieve the Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), a PGCE from the University of Birmingham, and the possibility of future employment at Ormiston.

Subjects on offer include biology, chemistry, English, modern languages, physics, mathematics, and computing, among others, with options for full or part-time study.
