Why Train to Teach with L.E.A.D. Equate?

L.E.A.D. Equate works with The Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance (LTSA SCITT) to provide a dynamic and supportive environment in which to learn to teach. We offer a high quality school based training programme tailored to your needs. Trainees benefit from working closely alongside experienced and committed staff who are eager to share their skills, experience and practice with the next generation of teachers. Our Alliance is committed to the continued professional development of its staff. Within a caring and stimulating atmosphere we want our trainees to become outstanding teachers and the future leaders of our learning community.

Schools now take a lead role in the coordination of recruitment and training, ensuring that trainees experience the classroom first-hand and learn from those who already do the job.  The class experience is backed by accredited tutor provision and theory, to ensure trainees are fully equipped to lead a classroom at the end of their training year.  L.E.A.D. Equate believes passionately in investing in our teachers of the future; trainees working with us can be confident in the quality of the training, support and care that they will receive during the year, and into their early years of teaching.

The routes into teaching have changed over recent years, with more and more schools leading the recruitment and training of new teachers, in place of universities.

This is set to continue over the next few years, moving fully into a school-led system through programmes such as School Direct and School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) partnerships.

As well as coordinating places for trainee teachers, we also coordinate the Lincolnshire ITT Network. This network meets each half term and allows all providers and lead schools for ITT to come together and ensure a cohesive, regional approach to teacher recruitment. This helps us ensure we can attract the very best teachers into Lincolnshire and provide them with the best quality training and support. The groups also allow us to have a strong voice back to government and those that make decisions about teacher training policy.
