Teach First

Alongside Ridgeway Education Trust and Orchard Learning Alliance, a key partner in our SCITT is Teach First.

Teach First is an educational charity with twenty years of experience and a clear mission of improving the life chances of the 1 in 4 children in this country who live in poverty and, in many cases, do not get the opportunity to thrive in school. A core aspect of this mission is training excellent teachers who, like us, share the goal of reducing educational inequality.

The research is clear that great teaching often has a disproportionately positive effect on our most vulnerable young people, and all our schools understand that teachers entering the profession today see this as a priority they want to help address.

In their twenty years so far, Teach First have trained more than 16000 teachers and supported over two million children to fulfil their potential.


So, when we were given the opportunity to work with such an experienced provider of high-quality teacher training, we were proud and excited to enter into partnership and launch the RET SCITT.
