Outstanding Provider

WRPITT is an outstanding ITT provider within the Yorkshire region and has been training teachers through its highly successful programme since 1999. WRPITT is a School Centred Initial Teacher Training Partnership (SCITT) involving the Aspire and Wakefield Regional Teaching School Alliances together with Wakefield Council.

The partnership was judged to be an Outstanding (Grade 1) provider for Initial Teacher Training by Ofsted in its inspection in June 2009 and again in June 2013. Ofsted recognised the strength of the partnership in the design and delivery of its innovative and collaborative programme.

In June 2013 Ofsted said:

“The exceptionally high rate of employment of trainees who join the programme is testament to the selection of highly committed prospective teachers, and to their very high attainment against the Teachers’ Standards”

“The partnership has an excellent reputation locally for producing high quality teachers and is attracting enquiries from schools well beyond the district”

“The training programme is designed to equip trainees with well-developed knowledge, understanding and skills and to offer them rich opportunities to develop and apply these through high-quality placements. Its success is confirmed by the excellent outcomes for trainees and the strong endorsement it receives from trainees themselves.”
