Ivybridge Community College is a lead school for Teach South West within Westcountry Schools Trust (WeST).
WeST are a partnership of high performing schools sharing our skills, experience, talent and capacity to help improve learning and achievement in schools across the South West both within and beyond our Trust.
Teach South West is our Initial Teaching Training branch of WeST and offers Primary and Secondary (11-16 with Post-16 enhancement) School Direct training placements in English, Maths, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, History, French, Spanish, PE, RE and Primary . All our programmes (with the exception of Geography) are through an @Exeter model in partnership with The University of Exeter, delivered at The Graduate School of Education, St Luke’s Campus, Exeter.
We always endeavour to place Teach South West trainees in schools that are agreeable to their circumstances and offer a breadth of experience; promoting future employability, hopefully within our Trust and/or local area of schools.
Teach South West trainees have access to high quality CPD available within the WeST Training School and are supported in finding the right post for their ECT (Early Career Teacher) years following their PGCE year.
