At the Learning Community Trust, we are passionate about supporting the development of our future teachers who want to make a difference within our local community and inspire the next generation.

If you are considering a career in the teaching profession, then we can help and advise you on the right provider and course for you. You may already have some experience working as a Teacher Assistant or volunteering in a school and we can support you make the next step by training to be a teacher.

If you want your training to be based in a setting where you can be fully immersed in the life of a teacher from day one, a school-led training course could be for you.

We provide teacher training through the School Direct Programme in conjunction with our local Teaching School Hub: Shropshire and Telford Education Partnership (STEP). Within STEP there are four providers who all offer the Schools Direct Programme in partnership with the University of Chester. However, the majority of training and school-based learning is delivered locally within Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin.

We also work with a range of other teacher training providers such as the West Midlands Consortium, Wolverhampton, Birmingham and Worcester Universities so we can find the right provider for the subject or area you wish to train in.

If you would like to find out more about training to teach with us, please contact Samantha Morris at Ercall Wood Academy: who would be happy to give you a tour of our academy sites and meet to discuss your options.
