What We Do

Why choose Esk Valley TSA? 

We believe passionately that we should do everything possible to provide a first-class education for children; the Esk Valley Alliance School Direct programme supports our vision by providing our trainee teachers with the skills and understanding to become outstanding teachers.

We pride ourselves on being able to offer a bespoke programme of learning to meet a range of individual interests and needs.

Our School Direct Primary Programme is a community of learning with partnership at its heart. The partnership works together to develop outstanding student teachers who are:

  • transformative and creative professionals
  • highly motivated and committed
  • autonomous and independent
  • enquiry based practitioners
  • self-reflective practitioners

Training with the Esk Valley Alliance will enable you to access ‘on the job’ training with a variety of experienced staff ranging from practicing class teachers and SLEs to serving headteachers, all of whom are committed to the ITT training program and believe that the best way for a teacher to learn is to be taught by the best.

During the programme you will have opportunities galore to experience a range of our schools, of which we have over 40, in the the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors and surrounding areas.

We are able to offer rural school placements as well as the larger primary school placements enabling your skills to cover the full span of primary ages including your chosen route.

You will be supported throughout your learning journey by an experienced ITT team and your appointed mentor. We are fully committed to enabling your successful launch into your teaching career.
