Personalised high-quality initial teacher training in Bradford

Exceed SCITT and Exceed Partnership

Exceed SCITT and Exceed Partnership offer the Bradford and Keighley 3-7 and 5-11 programmes from our Bradford Hub, based at Holybrook Primary school. Regardless of whether you apply to Exceed SCITT (Provider Led) or Exceed Partnership (School Direct) you will experience the same high quality programme. Trainees on both these training programmes train together. The schools serve inner-city Bradford and Keighley, providing high quality training opportunities across a diverse partnership. Opportunities include working with children where English is not their first language, pupils who are new to English and working in schools in challenging socio-economic areas. There is also opportunity to work in schools in Bronte Country serving a contrasting community.

Exceed Teaching School Alliance has two lead primary schools, Copthorne and Horton Grange  in Bradford and offers School Direct provision through Exceed Partnership. The Teaching Schools provide school improvement support for the city and region. The vast majority our trainees go on to access our Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) programme.
