NESTT is now LIVE!

By Sarah Bird, Deputy Director of the Julian Teaching School Hub and ITT Lead.

A new local teacher training organisation operating across Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk will support recent graduates and career changers into the classroom from September 2024.

Norfolk, Essex and Suffolk Teacher Training (NESTT) is being formed following a merger of experienced, “tried and tested”, school-centred initial teacher training (ITT) providers Suffolk and Norfolk SCITT and BEC Teacher Training.

The merger has been agreed following the Government’s recent ITT market review report which made recommendations on how to make sure all trainees receive high-quality training, how the ITT market maintains the capacity to deliver enough trainees and is accessible to candidates, and how the ITT system benefits all schools.

The Julian Teaching School Hub is proud to support NESTT and Sarah Bird, Deputy Director and ITT Lead, went along to Ipswich recently to meet with Mark Bennett, Senior Education Officer at Norfolk County Council and Ahson Mohammed, CEO of Compass Trust, the parent body of BEC Teacher Training as they signed the merger agreement.
