Lincroft Academy is the lead school for the School Direct one year courses leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with a PGCE. We work in partnership with The Pilgrim Partnership, and The Cambridge Partnership as the accredited provider, and pride ourselves in being able to offer a personalised training programme with a journey that begins as soon as you contact us. We will guide you all the way, from ‘just thinking about teaching’, getting your first job, to offering you advice and guidance about your continuing career development.
We offer a variety of training programmes to suit individual needs. If you are interested in working with children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), The Pilgrim Partnership work with a number of Special Schools.
With us, you will be choosing a Lead School and a provider with a proven track record for producing outstanding teachers for schools within our partnership which covers Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Milton Keynes and beyond.
Trainee experiences are designed to meet individual needs from the start of the course, encouraging them to progress quickly and effectively into skilled practitioners.
Our courses are highly effective in nurturing the talents of future generations of outstanding teachers. We believe in fostering reflective, self-assured trainees who are confident in questioning and rationalising their progress and ability as teachers throughout their course.
Trainees will be trained in a highly supportive and aspirational environment, and will develop the rigour, professional knowledge, understanding and skills necessary for teaching.
