On behalf of all our partner schools, I should like to welcome you to the Bournemouth, Poole & Dorset Teacher Training Partnership. Our partnership, which is led by Twynham Learning, provides School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) in all major secondary curriculum subjects.

We are committed to the provision of high quality teacher training across our partnership.

Our aim is to create opportunities that advance understanding of education and learning, preparing graduates wishing to enter the teaching profession.

We pride ourselves on the modelling of good practice in our delivery.

We believe in reflective learning for all our trainees, encouraging individuals to develop the skills necessary to become successful, committed, creative, enthusiastic and energetic teachers.

We are fortunate in that our partnershipis able to offer contrasting placements including comprehensive, grammar and special schools, and a link with the University of Winchester for the award of PGCE.

If you would like to find out more about our training provision, we hold regular recruitment events throughout the year; dates and times can be found on this website, along with further information about all aspects of the programme.
