eaching is a noble profession, which needs gifted and dedicated graduates to commit to it. Teaching is also a rewarding profession: you get to work with amazing people (children, young people and colleagues), doing work that makes you feel proud and valued, earning a salary that is higher than many people expect.

At this stage, you will be wondering where to apply and what route to follow. All Saints Ilkley and Eden TSA in partnerships with Leeds Trinity university are recruiting for the third year of this excellent PGCE programme. This is a growing partnership, set to expand year on year.

You'll see that we offer all the subject knowledge training in schools, led by School Leaders of Education and high quality Professional Studies training in your hub school, led by the university and leading to level 7 Masters credits. Innovative Teaching and Learning sits alongside current sessions written in line with DfE guidance, new initiatives and research led findings. All teaching and training is conducted in a friendly, small group environment. We feel this is an excellent route to select to set you up for your future career. You really do receive the personal, professional touch!

he early phase of a teaching career can be challenging. We aim to keep your workload manageable: academic work, assessments, and evidence-gathering requirements of the course are all focused on what you need to be an excellent teacher. 'University submissions' and 'School - based Training' are designed to complement each other and to develop your excellent practice as a teacher. All aimed to provide you with the essential skills needed for an early career teacher.

The schools that employ our graduates in their first posts tell us that the PGCE equips beginning teachers with the essential tools that they need to join the teaching profession, make a positive impact in the classroom, and to get careers off to a very good start.

We are confident that the training offered through our Partnership is truly excellent and that we recruit graduates with real potential. As well as getting glowing feedback from our students last year, 100% of them were graded as Outstanding or Good in overall teaching judgments by the end of programme and 100 were employed in teaching posts or registered on further study by September 2018.
