  • 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.

If you are thinking of applying for our course, starting next September 2022, you will be able to find us via from 5th October 2021

Our Mersey Borough’s main course provider code is: 1X8 and St Mary and St Paul’s Schools Direct provider code is: 17Q

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.
