Initial Teacher Training

Links already established, have been embedded with the ‘Pioneers trust’ SCITT based at Middleton Technology College and St Anne’s is involved with CPD sessions and interviews and more recently reviews with other trainees at Rochdale schools. St Anne’s is also working with ‘Nexus’ SCITT based at The Bluecoat School where we continue to develop links and host contrasting school placements. The Academy continues to have strong relationships working closely with the PGCE Programme at MMU and more recently we have also been working with The University of Manchester. All of our trainees have a 2 week ‘Induction Programme’ to engage in school life and see and experience every aspect of the Academy. A programme of internal CPD takes place for all trainees and all trainees are welcome and encouraged to participate in whole school training
