One of the country's leading providers of School led Primary Teacher Training

Welcome to Mersey Boroughs ITT

One of the countries leading providers of truly school led School Direct Primary Teacher Training

Are you a graduate career changer, or are you just about to graduate? Is teaching the career for you? Are you looking for the best teacher training route?

Our well established and highly successful PRIMARY programme has a fantastic success rate:

  • Last year, 100% of our trainees graduated as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ teachers
  • Our employment rate is consistently very high - between 97 and 100% each year
  • Our rates of retaining teachers after training is excellent - all of our first cohort are still teaching and many have now moved into leadership roles.

Applications for our 2021/22 places will open via Find postgraduate teacher training from October 2020.  Our Mersey Borough's course code is provider code: 1X8 course code: 2DFY and St Mary and St Paul's Schools Direct course code is provider code: 17Q and course code 3CLS.

PLEASE NOTE: July 2020.

With immediate effect the DfE will not be funding any new SKE courses for the remainder of this years application cycle. Funding should resume for new SKE applicants from October 2020.  

While MBITT doesn’t currently offer any secondary ITT places, we do work in partnership with Eureka Online College to support potential secondary applicants through offering Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses.

SKE programmes are especially designed for graduates aspiring to teach a shortage subject, but for which their specialist subject knowledge falls short of the threshold required to join a teacher training course.
