The Pioneers Partnership is a SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training), providing both the salaried and non-salaried training routes into teaching, at both Primary and Secondary level.

We are located across Rochdale Local Authority and a high percentage of our trainees are employed by Rochdale schools on completion of their training. We benefit from our trusting and supportive relationship with all Headteachers and from all stakeholders within the Partnership there is a clear commitment to ensuring trainees realise their potential. The lead school is Middelton Technology School, one of the top achieving schools in the country. During the last Ofsted inspection Middleton was judged to be outstanding in every respect. The wider partnership extends to the vast majority of secondary schools and colleges within the borough and has expanded further due to becoming part of a Multi Academy Trust. The Partnership also includes six primary schools. You will complete training after one year with Qualified Teacher Status and the option of a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.
