i2i Teaching Partnership

I2ipartnership logo rgb newWelcome to the i2i Teaching Partnership  – an alliance of highly successful secondary schools in Surrey, Hampshire, Middlesex and Berkshire delivering a first class and highly supportive School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programme for aspiring secondary school teachers.

The partnership is led by Weydon School - an Ofsted ‘outstanding’ school which has a passion for the professional development of all those in the teaching profession; from helping Trainees take their first steps in the classroom, to helping nurture school leaders of the future.  We go the extra mile in delivering a first class school-based Initial Teacher Training programme (11-16) leading to both QTS and PGCE, which aims to equip you with the skills, knowledge and resilience needed to become the best teacher you can possibly be.  If you are a dynamic individual with the passion and drive to become an outstanding teacher, we would like to hear from you.

We also welcome potential applicants to register for our School Experience Programme. School experience is invaluable for you if:

  • you would like to gain an insight into teaching and find out if it is for you
  • you would like to gain observational experience prior to interview

You can register and apply for this programme at www.i2ipartnership.co.uk/34/school-experience-programme
