The i2i Teaching Partnership is an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) provider. We deliver a high-quality School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programme for aspiring secondary school teachers across a partnership of 21 schools in Surrey, Hampshire, Middlesex and Berkshire.
The partnership is led by an ‘outstanding’ school which has a passion for the professional development of all those in the teaching profession; from helping Trainees take their first steps in the classroom, to helping nurture school leaders of the future.
The programme provides high-quality school based and centre-based training, enabling all Trainees to develop into confident and competent professionals. School based training is provided 4 days a week through a main placement school and a complimentary second placement. Trainees receive centre-based training every Monday in the form of general Professional Studies and subject specific training. Every Trainee works closely with a subject expert Mentor in their placement schools. Expert Quality Assurance Tutors work closely with all stakeholders involved in the training of the Trainee to ensure training is coherent and highly relevant to the needs of Trainees.
The Partnership is committed to the principle of ‘continuous reflective practice’; it underpins everything that we do. The most effective teachers are those who are able to reflect, evaluate and develop their own practice; they seek advice, draw on expertise, are willing to experiment and are not afraid of making mistakes. The children in our schools are not stagnant or stationary; they deserve teachers who are willing to stay abreast of the latest training in order to deliver the high-quality education which every child deserves. Our programme aims to start teachers on this lifelong journey and equip them with the skills, knowledge and resilience needed to become the best teachers they can possibly be.
