Teacher Training



Our Lady Queen of Peace RCVA Primary School works in partnership with St Robert of Newminster Catholic School and Sixth Form College to support initial teacher training through the Trinity North East Schools Direct programme. Training is provided by the Trinity Teaching Alliance and the Diploma in Education and Training (Level 5, PGCE) qualification accreditation is provided by Sacred Heart Teaching School Alliance.
Trainees join our school team for one year during which they are fully immersed in the life of the school. They learn alongside experienced teachers and have increasing teaching responsibilities across the year. Experience is gained in both Key Stage one and two and there is a six week placement in another school. Academic training is provided by Sacred Heart Teaching School Alliance and a portfolio of evidence is collated by the trainee to map progress.
Visits are welcome on our open morning when more information will be available. Please also contact the head teacher directly or Carolyn Adams, Teaching School Alliance Manager at
