The BDAT ITT mission is to drive school improvement by recruiting and developing thoughtful, reflective trainees.
Our partner, GORSE SCITT, is an Ofsted Outstanding teacher training provider rated Outstanding in all aspects of their work.
BDAT believe that there are no great schools without great staff, and our values reflect this:
Aspiration - We set high expectation for ourselves, our trainees and our staff so that each of us is supported to achieve our own potential.
Inclusion. We understand everyone is equal, without exception. We value and encourage diversity and difference. We proactively seek to learn from others.
Excellence - We provide rigorous support and challenge to our trainees. We strive for excellence in all they do.
Compassion - We care for each other. We respect each other and treat our trainees how they would expect to be treated. We make sure they are safe, feel loved and are actively supported at all times.
Resilience - We are ambitious and reflective. We will support our trainees to be determined and brave in making decisions and resilient when facing challenges. We expect our schools to provide them with the skills and knowledge to guide them through their future as lifelong learners.
We have partnered with a carefully selected, highly successful and committed provider in GORSE SCITT who share our ethos, and together, we will provide you with a great teacher training experience.
