Mersey Boroughs Teacher Training Partnership Celebrates another successful year

Newly qualified teachers trained in Knowsley recently celebrated their new status at their graduation in the beautiful grounds of Knowsley Hall.

Thirty two trainees gained their Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in July after successfully completing their training with Mersey Boroughs Initial Teacher Training Programme.

Our programme is very well regarded by trainees, newly qualified teachers and employing schools with employment and retention rates above those of other teacher training providers. Trainees say that they like the fact that the course is predominately school based with local schools fully involved in the design and delivery of the course.

Philip Eastwood, Director of teacher training said, “The Celebration event rounded off a fantastic year for Mersey Boroughs. We achieved a glowing report from Ofsted in January 2017 which highlighted the many strengths of our school based teacher training course. We now have 32 newly qualified teachers who have secured employment in schools across Merseyside and beyond. They can’t wait to start teaching and take responsibility for their own classes

We are now looking forward to training this years cohort of graduates as they prepare for a life in the classroom”
