What We Do
York St John University
We work in partnership with York St John University to provide our Teaching Training Programme.
York St John University (YSJU) has been heavily involved in teacher education since 1869 and currently runs primary and secondary training, both as university centred programmes and School Direct Alliance partners.
The YSJU ITE partnership supports and trains student teachers who are intelligent risk takers who base their professional decisions on a deep-rooted understanding of children’s learning and effective pedagogies. They ensure that all children make good progress, addressing diverse needs and fully engaging them in learning; learning is supported by a commitment to continuing professional development and strong engagement with all stakeholders in our partnership and a child-centered philosophy.
Initial Teacher Education with the Esk Valley Teaching Alliance in collaboration with York St John University will provide you with high quality training that not only responds to the demands of the Teaching Standards and changes in the wider education landscape, but also encompasses and embraces that which criticises and critiques current practice, encouraging, acknowledging and rewarding research-led reflection on pedagogy.
