Harris Teacher Training rated 'Outstanding'

All of us at the Harris Federation are thrilled and delighted that the qualification programme we provide for trainee teachers has been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.

We were first accredited to provide the training in 2014.  All of our trainees are either graduates or people who have decided to change careers in order to become teachers.  This year, we are training almost 150 people to become successful primary and secondary teachers.

Inspectors visited 10 Harris academies, where they spoke to our trainees and observed them teach.  As well as commenting on the ‘high calibre’ of our trainees, inspectors found that our training ‘consistently secures outstanding outcomes’. 

Once trainees are qualified, inspectors found that their first year in the profession is ‘extremely well supported by leaders and trainers so that the transition from trainee to teacher is highly professional.’

Our teacher training team recently made a short video introducing our extremely varied but universally talented and ambitious trainees. Watch it on www.harristraintoteach.com.

Rachael Hare, Head of Harris Initial Teacher Education at Harris said:

We’re incredibly proud of the exceptional quality of our trainees and alumni.  Principals often feed back that graduates from the programme are uniquely well-prepared and far in advance of their peers, starting their NQT year highly confident in their teaching ability and experts in terms of subject knowledge, inclusion and behaviour management.

It is a tremendous credit to our dynamic, talented trainers and mentors that our initial inspection has resulted in a judgement of Outstanding in every category.  Our exceptional training team, subject mentors and academy staff work closely in partnership to ensure the strongest of outcomes for our beginner teachers, and therefore the children in our schools.”
