Anyone interested in becoming a teacher is invited to a special open evening where they can find out all they need to know about training – from a teacher training provider rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.

The event, organised by the Wakefield Regional Partnership for Initial Teacher Training (WRPITT), takes place on Thursday, 5 February 2015 at Ossett Academy, Storrs Hill Road, Ossett, WF5 0DG.

The evening will begin with a presentation at 5.00pm, following which there will be an opportunity to talk with representatives of the partnership and find out more about teacher training in Wakefield. This will then be repeated at 6.00pm.

WRPITT will also be attending a Train to Teach Roadshow 2014/2015 being held at The Royal York Hotel, Station Road, York, North Yorkshire YO24 1AA on Saturday 14 March 2015 from 10am-1pm.

Cllr Olivia Rowley, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: "If you are interested in becoming a teacher, you could be trained by an outstanding provider right here in Wakefield. 

"We want to encourage people into the profession and then give them the best training we can.

"I hope anyone thinking about becoming a teacher will come along, find out more and start their journey into the teaching profession."

WRPITT has been recognised by Ofsted as a provider of outstanding Initial Teacher Training in England and has been invited to share good practice at a national conference.
