Why train with us?

“In pursuit of excellence”

Not only will you achieve Qualified Teacher Status, but you will embark on a career. The vast majority of our trainees achieve a Grade 1 outstanding grade by the end of the course and all over recent years have gone straight into employment. However our “Pursuit of Excellence” does not end when you gain QTS, instead it is just the beginning.

By choosing to start your career in Rochdale you will be eligible for a rich programme of Continuous Professional Development on offer from the borough’s two designated Teaching Schools – Middleton Technology School and Hollingworth Academy.

Beyond your Newly Qualified Teacher induction you will continue to receive support as an NQT, and our Professional Development Pathway shows clear Leadership opportunities all the way up to Headship.
