A GRAM­MAR school has been awarded a pres­ti­gious ac­cred­i­ta­tion so it can train teach­ers.

From Septem­ber 2016, Dr Chal­loner’s Gra­mamr School, Che­sham Road in Amer­sham will be a School Cen­tred Ini­tial Teacher Train­ing provider (SCITT).

The school will aim to re­cruit up to 74 trainees for this school-led train­ing who will re­ceive qual­i­fied teacher sta­tus at the end of the year train­ing. They will be­gin in Septem­ber 2016 in both the pri­mary and sec­ondary sec­tors, work­ing across 23 Bucks Schools.

As­sis­tant head of the school, Stephanie Rodgers, said: “The dif­fer­ence with this scheme is that trainee teach­ers will know where they are placed, it is about schools tak­ing charge in the train­ing process. We

TRAIN­ING TEACH­ERS: Staff at Dr Chal­loner’s Gram­mar School proved that we can pro­vide the right level of train­ing and sup­port to trainee teach­ers.”

There are 75 schools with the same ac­cred­i­ta­tion across the coun­try. The trainees of the scheme will be able to do their train­ing, while form­ing a re­la­tion­ship with their school.

The aim of SCITT is to pro­vide prac­ti­cal, hand­son teacher train­ing, de­liv­ered by ex­pe­ri­enced teach­ers. Trainee teach­ers will learn on the job.

Mrs Rodgers said: “I think that it bring schools to­gether – it is em­pow­er­ing.”

Trainees have teacher men­tors to help them with the pro­gramme. For more in­for­ma­tion, see www. as­tra-al­liance.com.
