About the training provider

Our schools are fantastic places to train, work and learn. They provide a unique school based learning opportunity in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire, which is our higher education partner. Our partnership’s vision is simple but powerful; we prepare our teachers and students to be respectful of others, to be confident in all that they do and to achieve their full potential.

Also, all partnership schools endeavour to create an environment in which staff, pupils and trainee teachers alike feel valued and supported. We have all worked with trainee teachers for many years and we fully recognise how much vibrancy, enthusiasm and drive they can offer our respective school communities.

Importantly, the partnership sees its staff as its most valuable resource and its schools have a proven track record in training and professional development. Our teachers are excellent practitioners with exemplary behaviour management skills and are eager to share their skills, knowledge and practice with the next generation of teachers.

Our Partnership Schools: The partnership are all located in East Hertfordshire. Namely, Goffs Academy, Goffs-Churchgate Academy, Haileybury Turnford, Robert Barclay Academy (RBA), Goffs Oak Primary, Burleigh Primary, Hunsdon JMI Primary and St Andrew’s CE Primary.

Where to Find Our Schools: The schools in the partnership are strategically positioned a few miles from Junction 25 of the M25 and are all close to the A1. The nearest mainline railway stations are in Cheshunt and Broxbourne. Goffs Oak Primary is close to Cuffley station.
