Derby City Schools Alliance

Derby City Schools Alliance

Derby City Schools Alliance has 1 year history of joining and working with Nottingham University, we have been hugely successful. Currently there are 12 partner schools working with Hardwick Primary School as a lead school.

All trainees who complete the School Direct Course will be awarded with a PGCE with 60 masters credits. 100% employment from our cohort has been achieved and the quality of training has been praised by our partner schools, with Head Teachers stating that the trainees are of a high standard.The alliance has easily recruited applicants.
 
The schools in the alliance all know each other and work well together as mentors and trainees, ensuring there is support for all involved in the partnership. We have clear capacity to provide very good training as all schools within the alliance are at least good, with Hardwick being outstanding school. Meetings are all very well attended by trainees, mentors and Head Teachers and the coordination from the alliance has ensured communication with the university has been successful.
