As an Early Career Teacher, you have a unique opportunity to work with young people, inspiring the next generation, making a real difference to pupils’ learning and lives and helping them to realise their ambitions.
At Durham, our ITE courses are co-constructed and delivered by our Partnership colleagues in conjunction with University Teacher Educators. For our Primary courses, trainee teacher work within Clusters spread across the Partnership and in Secondary, our trainees work in our PODs (Professional Opportunities and Development schools) which are situated across the region.
All programmes are evidence-based and have woven within them, the trainee teacher’s minimum entitlement which is outlined in the Core Content Framework. The Initial Teacher Education Year is the first year of a structured package of support for future generations of teachers and feeds seamlessly into the Early Career Framework.
