Initial Teacher Training


We are passionate about developing the next generation of teachers.

We are proud to work in partnership with Teach South East and St Mary's University to train teachers. Both are outstanding providers of Initial Teacher Training and provide different routes into training, both of which we can support here at St Michael's.


We are proud to be a partner school of Teach SouthEast, a SCITT provider (School Centred Initial Teacher Training). Teach SouthEast provides all trainees with high quality training, in both primary and secondary settings, to enable them to develop into competent and confident professionals. Trainees are well prepared through first-rate complementary placements which ensure that they gain substantial practical experience, developing their evaluative and practical teaching skills effectively. In-school expert mentors and external subject trainers have consistently high expectations and work collaboratively to ensure training is coherent and highly relevant to the needs of trainees.
