School Led Initial Teacher Training

The NTSA is an accredited provider of School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) offering initial teacher education (ITE) through both Primary and Secondary school age phases; Ninestiles ITT Consortium & BPTP. Across the Alliance and beyond we work with a number of schools to offer Core provider-led, School Direct and School Direct salaried places in primary and a variety of secondary subjects. As a SCITT we are also permitted to work with other Lead Schools as their provider for School Direct placements, and pride ourselves on the personalised provision package we can offer. All our programmes result in high quality outcomes of individuals with QTS & Post Graduate Certificate in Education (Level 7).
