Teacher Training

Do you want to be a Teacher?

 

We offer School Direct Teacher Training!

School Direct is a Government initiative, providing school-led teacher training. It places trainee teachers in the classroom from day 1 working alongside experienced teachers to learn the skills of teaching “on the job”. This real teaching experience is supported by training held at both a University and the Learning Alliance or Teaching School.

At Ivanhoe we work in collaboration with 2 training providers: Forest Way Alliance and LiFE MAT.
