Waverley is part of the Walbottle Village Teaching Schools Alliance. At our school we are keen to contribute to the next generation of teachers and school leaders. Mrs Kate Dalkin is our designated coordinator for student placements.
As part of this collaboration we are part of 'Creating Teachers for Tomorrow' (CT4T) . This agency is responsible for delivering a dynamic, new Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programme based in the Outer West of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
We are working in partnership with Northumbria University offering one year full time Schools Direct tuition placements and two salaried placements. We have accepted our first applications for Schools Direct and over the coming years we are looking for outstanding candidates.
Candidates will become part of a long established network of schools that work closely together and frequently share expertise. We are fortunate to be able to offer a wide variety of settings within our Alliance which includes: small village schools, large two form entry schools and opportunities to have placements in a pupil referral unit and a specialist provision for children with autistic spectrum disorder.
We will provide support, expertise and an array of experiences, allowing trainees to fulfil their potential as excellent practitioners.
Successful applicants joining CT4T, will gain a full PGCE with Masters credits from Northumbria University. Trainees will spend four days a week based in host and placement schools, with the fifth day dedicated to bespoke training and university support.

We would like to welcome Mr Noble to Mrs Dalkin's year 3/4 class. He will be working with us from September to October as part of our Creating Teachers for Tomorrow course. We are really looking forward to working with him.
