‘Unlocking Futures’

As a trainee, you will work with a highly-skilled, caring and supportive team within a school who will do everything they can for you to succeed. You will be allocated an experienced school-based mentor who supports you during the programme. Trainees are encouraged to work collegiately by sharing experiences and offering mutual support.

Our partner schools reflect the diverse nature of education on the outskirts of Birmingham, ensuring your placements are varied and increase your chances of finding the school that is right for you.

Trainees are encouraged to develop into reflective teachers who can respond to the learning needs of children of all abilities. You will be assessed against the Teacher Standards through regular lesson observations with supportive feedback and ongoing self-reflection.

Crocketts is an excellent place to train for many reasons including:

  • We are committed to supporting and developing the next generation of teachers.
  • A decade of successful training with Newman University.
  • Feedback from previous trainees is always complimentary. · Opportunities to participate in the wider aspects of school life. · We tailor and customise each individual’s training to ensure you will develop into balanced well-rounded professionals. · Extensive support provided by high-quality tutors and school colleagues.
