Rochdale’s schools can only be as good as the people who work in them.
Our vision is that the partnership will respond strategically to local need by training high quality graduates in order to provide schools and students with outstanding teachers. We are in pursuit of excellence in every aspect of our recruitment, training and outcomes.
All students in Rochdale deserve to be given access to outstanding teaching and learning opportunities. Therefore we will:
* Recruit trainees with the potential, resilience and drive to become outstanding teachers
* Provide outstanding and highly personalised training designed to meet the individual needs of each trainee
* Prepare our trainees with the skills they need to be outstanding teachers in different circumstances
* Collaboratively lead and manage the SCITT so that the needs of each trainee and school are met
The North West lags behind national figures in terms of good and better schools (67% compared to 71%). One third of our region’s students are not receiving a good secondary education. At 75% good and better schools, Rochdale is in a stronger position to invest in our communities of differing economic and social need. The partnership will contribute to schools’ improvement agendas whilst helping to provide our students with the outstanding teaching they deserve.
