We currently have 11 primary schools and 1 high school in our Partnership. Some of the primary schools have similar levels of deprivation as any inner-city area, others are in more affluent suburbs. Half the schools have links to the Church of England, three are foundation schools. Five of the primary schools are academies and we have a multi-academy trust with one high school and two primary schools. One placement will be in Key Stage 1 and the other will be in Key Stage 2.

How to apply
We will be interviewing successful applicants from 18th November. To apply, please visit http://www.ucas.com/apply/teacher-training and choose All primary schools in the Congleton Partnership (CeCP) code 29W as your preferred training provider.
It is essential that applicants have 10 days in-school experience prior to application and communication skills are high. We have experience of working with many Universities for Initial Teacher Training and can offer outstanding teaching experiences in a variety of settings with children from 5-11 years. Many of these aspects are led by current school practitioners / leaders in their field. In order to ensure employability and that our trainees are meeting the needs of the sector we enrich the core provision through school based twilight sessions i.e. KiVa Anti-Bullying training, Growth Mindsets, Forest School, Philosophy for Children, Co-operative Learning Techniques and an arts-based residential.
