Five Towns ITT Partnership

The Five Towns ITT Partnership offers you the opportunity to train through the School Direct initiative in a range of schools across Wakefield and the Five Towns (Castleford, Wakefield, Normanton, Pontefract and Featherstone.). Training with us guarantees that you will gain the benefit of in-school experience with outstanding teachers together with professional studies sessions hosted by a team of talented academics at Leeds Beckett University. Our partnership encompasses a range of schools across the Five Towns area, so you'll benefit from a contrasting school experience and have the chance to forge links and network with other trainees and staff across the partnership's schools.

We are looking for ambitious and committed individuals with a passion for their subject and a desire to share their enthusiasm and inspire young people. If you have these qualities coupled with a relentless focus on securing the best outcomes for young people, we would encourage you to apply to train with us.
