Welcome to the i2i Teaching Partnership – an alliance of highly successful secondary schools in Surrey, Hampshire, Middlesex and Berkshire delivering a first class and highly supportive School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programme leading to both QTS and PGCE for aspiring secondary school teachers.
The partnership is led by exceptional teachers and leaders who have 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.
Our SCITT programme provides high quality school-led and centre-based training, enabling all trainees to develop into confident and competent professionals.
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 SCITT 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.
At i2i we feel that is not just about "what" we do, but also "why" we do it. Our vision for training teachers is about ensuring that the education system in this area, and further afield, has highly skilled teachers who can support the progress, love of lifelong learning and life chances of all the young people they work with.
By supporting you in your training year, and into your career through ongoing professional development, we know that you will help us achieve our vision and transform the lives of the next generation.
We are proud of this supportive approach and strong reputation, and invite you to watch the short video below to learn more about what we believe is a truly exceptional programme.
