We are delighted to announce that our teacher training provision, delivered in partnership with Inspiring Leaders Teacher Training, has achieved an ‘Outstanding’ rating in our recent Ofsted inspection.

The inspection, conducted in May 2023, assessed the program’s overall effectiveness, the quality of education and training, as well as its leadership and management. The Ofsted report highlighted the overwhelmingly positive experiences of trainees, who actively sought out Inspiring Leaders Teacher Training due to its renowned high-quality training. The inspectors were particularly impressed by the strong culture of ambition, professionalism, and high expectations, all while prioritising the wellbeing of trainees. As one Headteacher said, “There is a really strong culture of ambition, professionalism, and high expectation, but this is all wrapped up by having the well-being of all trainees at heart.”

Anne Ingle, Head teacher at Pinxton Village Academies. “We have been incredibly proud to work in partnership with the SCITT. The Pinxton Village Academies have been privileged to support the training of the SCITT students many of whom are now permanent members of staff in our school. SCITT grown teachers have received incredible training and are now shaping the minds and futures of our children. ”

Inspiring Leaders Teacher Training offers various routes towards Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), including SCITT (fee-paying and salaried) and assessment-only routes. We are thrilled to announce that 90 trainees have already signed up to begin their journey with us in September this year, across the region.

Chris Wheatley, CEO of Flying High Partnership, echoed the sentiments of the report, expressing great pride in the Outstanding rating. “I am absolutely delighted to have achieved an Ofsted outstanding, recognising our commitment to teacher training across this area and beyond. We know that by having outstanding teacher training across Derbyshire we can attract the high-quality trainees, who through our support will become exceptional teachers within schools across the locality”

The ‘Outstanding’ rating awarded to Inspiring Leaders Teacher Training is a testament to the dedication, hard work, and passion of all those involved in the program. It exemplifies the strong partnership between the training provider, schools, and trainees, all working together to shape the next generation of confident and effective teachers.
