The i2i partnership consists of 25 highly successful secondary schools around Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire and Middlesex, all committed to providing, outstanding teacher training and all experienced in delivering and leading initial teacher training.
Placing trainees is a complex process and we take many factors into consideration when doing so. These factors include:
- Establishing which schools in the partnership have the capacity to host a trainee in a particular subject (please note this may not be the most local school to you)
- Selecting a Mentor who will be the best fit for the trainee
- Establishing at interview where the candidate will be living for the course, if the candidate drives and if they have access to a car or if they will be dependent on public transport.
We do not expect trainees to travel for longer than an hour each way to their placement school. Trainee journeys to their placement schools are typically between 20 - 40 minutes and we always do our best to accommodate trainees’ personal circumstances when placing them.
We do offer a limited amount of accommodation to rent adjacent to Weydon School within a four bedroom detached house on a fixed one-year tenancy.
Trainees will spend the first term in their main placement school. After Christmas, trainees will be given a six-week contrasting second placement until the February half term, after which they will return to their main placement school.
All of our Initial Teacher Training courses teach the age range 11-16 so every trainee will get an exposure to teaching Key Stages 3 and 4.
Trainees will also do short KS2 and KS5 placement at a primary school (three days), a Sixth Form (two days), and one day enrichment placements in an SEN (Special Educational Needs) and PRU (Pupil Referral Unit) setting.
All our schools are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young children and safer recruitment procedures are followed by the i2i SCITT Partnership. We expect all staff and trainees to share responsibility for this.
