Are you interested in becoming a teacher with Teamworks?

Our team at Teamworks are outstanding, committed and experienced ITT educators. We run a bespoke programme with highly personalised support for each of our trainee teachers, based in West Yorkshire.  As a SCITT, we have the same recommending powers as a University but our programme provides local, entirely school-based training on both primary and secondary courses, with QTS and a PGCE at the end.

Who are we?

AA Teamworks West Yorkshire SCITT is a partnership made up of 27 primary schools and 12 secondary schools in Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds and Bradford. A key strength of our partnership is the diversity of schools - our partners encompass the geographical, social and economic diversity of West Yorkshire giving our alliance breadth and depth. We provide a rich and varied training experience in at least two contrasting schools, and the opportunity to work with a range of children and staff; this ensures that you are trained to teach in all schools from the very start of your career.

Our ITT training programme ensures that you experience a high quality, rigorous and supportive education almost entirely based in schools, supplemented with a PGCE from The University of Huddersfield. The training days for the programme are once a week, spread across the academic year, in order to best support the practical learning approach, and are taught by a specialist team of staff including; outstanding classroom practitioners, school leaders, SENCos, examiners and Specialist Leaders of Education. Our highly committed and enthusiastic team also provide top quality mentoring throughout the programme.

What we're looking for

We are recruiting at primary level and in a wide variety of subjects at secondary level.

We have the highest expectations of our students, and what they can achieve, so we are looking for people who are highly motivated, reflective and creative, and most of all are committed to teaching as a career!
