Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College and King Edward VI Grammar School have got on board with a new teacher training initiative.

The Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance (LTSA) has been accredited to lead and deliver the government-backed programme, the School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT), across 
12 core secondary subjects.

Andrew Chisholm, Director of the LTSA, said: “One of the most exciting things about running a SCITT is that we can identify special areas of need within participating schools and then advertise, interview and train the outstanding teachers that we require.”

Mike Eyre, Head of Monks Dyke Tennyson College, said: “Working with the University of Lincoln, we are able to customise the training to meet both the needs of the school 
and the trainees, who gain practical experience from day one. It is a great way to learn and qualify to become a teacher.”
