We are a partner of GORSE SCITT (formerly Leeds Teaching School Alliance) which offers a dynamic route into teaching, providing high quality Initial Teacher Training around Leeds. New entrants to the teaching profession are able to train directly with the SCITT in schools within The GORSE Academies Trust and also in partner schools in the local area.
The trust has an outstanding record of recruiting trainees from its programme to newly qualified teaching positions within its schools and graduates from the SCITT are in high demand in schools outside of the Alliance.
At Bruntcliffe Academy many of our strongest professionals have been recruited through GORSE SCITT, and we are particularly pleased to have recruited expertise in Mathematics, English, RE, Art, Geography, and MFL. As an academy on a dramatic road to improvement, the quality of the NQTS we have recruited has meant they have “hit the ground running”, delivering transformational teaching to our students from day one.
