The Tommy Flowers SCITT is delighted to announce it has been successfully accredited to deliver Initial Teacher Training (ITT) from September 2024. The ‘Outstanding’ (Ofsted) partnership trains new primary and secondary teachers and this news protects the supply of high quality teachers for the schools of Milton Keynes, Aylesbury and the surrounding areas.
The Minister for Schools, Robin Walker, announced reforms to ITT to provide “well-trained, well-supported teachers with the expertise needed to deliver great teaching every day.” The Tommy Flowers SCITT is one of just 80 universities and school-based teacher training providers to be awarded accreditation.
Tom Molloy, Director of the Tommy Flowers SCITT said, “Accreditation to deliver teacher training beyond 2024 is excellent news for the schools, pupils and families in our area. Several hundred new teachers have benefitted from working with our committed mentors and expert trainers and we are thrilled that we will continue to ensure pupils have access to a well-trained, skilled and enthusiastic teacher.”
Jo-Anne Hoarty, Headteacher of St. Paul’s Catholic School said, “I am delighted that we can continue to work in partnership with schools across Milton Keynes to provide high quality initial teacher training. It is a privilege to work with people at the very beginning of their careers and see them progress over the years.”
Ian Joyce, CEO of the Denbigh Alliance added, “Accreditation is fantastic news. The Tommy Flowers SCITT has a history of providing outstanding training throughout Milton Keynes and beyond, and we are honoured to be continuing this service beyond 2024.”
