Train to teach: meet our partners

Introducing you to our Initial Teacher Training partners.

We're delighted to let you know that the Julian Teaching School Hub is partnering with Norfolk Teacher Training Centre (NTTC) and Norfolk Essex Suffolk Teacher Training (NESTT) to deliver on our Initial Teacher Training (ITT) remit in 2023-24.

Who is NESTT?

Although the name is new, Norfolk, Essex and Suffolk Teacher Training (NESTT) has been formed through a merger of Suffolk and Norfolk SCITT and BEC Teacher Training. Between us, we have over 50 years of experience of training teachers. We’ll still be delivering the same local, high quality, personalised training for which we are known. Alongside that, the new organisation will give us scope to develop an even wider range of courses to suit our trainees and our schools.

Why Train with NESTT?

  • A Track Record of Success
    NESTT is formed from a merger of two well-established school-based teacher training providers who between them have over 50 years of experience of successful teacher training in the East of England.
  • High Quality Face to Face Training
    Our training course is the perfect combination of theoretical knowledge and practical experience, ensuring you get enjoyment and satisfaction from your new career.
  • A Personalised Programme
    Our locally-based teams will continue to build on existing relationships with schools to meet individual trainee needs and personalise the training journey.
  • A Wide Range of Placements
    We work with over 200 local schools across East Anglia, so we are able to offer you a wide range of placements in a school that is local to you.
  • Rapid Career Development
    The vast majority of our trainees take up positions in our local schools. Our high-quality training is fully aligned with the Early Career Framework, so our trainees get a flying start, many of them enjoying accelerated career development.

Who is NTTC?

Norfolk Teacher Training Centre (NTTC) is a leading teacher training provider with an outstanding reputation. Established in 2014, the number of trainee teachers on our programme has grown year-on-year, and over 240 teachers have graduated from NTTC and entered the profession since we began. Everything we do is about training outstanding teachers. We are dedicated to you and your future in this dynamic and rewarding profession.

Why train with NTTC?

We believe that you should be at the centre of your own teacher training programme, so we provide you with as much choice as possible over your course design and placement schools. We are known for our flexibility and this is because we have a proven track record in delivering bespoke programmes for our trainees, which lead to outstanding success. We work with over 55 partnership schools, academies and colleges, and on our programme, you will spend most of the time teaching in a school rather than studying in a classroom.

Our school-based courses are ideal for anyone who has a passion for teaching and who wants a substantial element of classroom experience as part of their training. It is the most practical way to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). 

On completion of the course, successful trainees will have QTS, enabling them to work as a teacher in maintained or non-maintained schools in England and Wales. At the end of your training, you will also have a depth of experience of working with young children in a variety of settings, giving you the skills to teach in any school and academy. Your school-based experience will be underpinned by a professional development programme through which you will develop the knowledge, skills and understanding needed for the teaching profession, along with the key issues which shape educational provision for young people.

Our courses give trainees a good foundation on which to build their teaching career. Not only do we support trainees through their training, but help them to prepare for their Early Career Teaching years (ECT) by providing expert advice and insight into the profession.
