The Pathfinder ITT programme will provide you with a high quality, school centred training programme for the whole year. But don’t just take our word for it. We have been training student teachers for a number of years now. Let them tell you what they think…

“Pathfinder offered so much support that made training so much easier and more comfortable. Peers, training leads and staff all helped to ensure we were on track and happy with our progress. Sessions are interesting and engaging, with amazing speakers and some of the best specialists to cover every aspect of teaching.”

“Pathfinder has allowed me to learn from experienced staff and immerse myself in the culture of an outstanding school. The training and support provided by the teaching school has been excellent. You are guided through every stage of your career – from walking into your first placement to applying for your first post. I would highly recommend PTSA to anyone considering teaching as a career.”
