Forest Way Alliance

Train to be a teacher with us at Forest Way Initial Teacher Training!

Our school-based Initial Teacher Training programme is accredited by the University of Derby. It places Beginning Teachers in the classroom from day one working alongside experienced mentors to learn the ​skills of teaching 'on the job'.

We have been running our successful programmes, in partnership with the University of Derby, for over 10 years and have seen fantastic results along the way with our Beginning Teachers all securing teaching jobs after completion of their PGCE training year.
