Our Courses

Initial Teacher Training (ITT)

Lionwood Schools Federation and the schools within Inclusive Schools Trust have a history of supporting students undertaking their Initial Teacher Training. Over the years we have worked with Suffolk and Norfolk School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) and the University of East Anglia (UEA) to provide Schools Direct placements in our schools. We have provided additional placements for students and Newly Qualified Teachers who have struggled in other placements and we have a reputation for providing excellent training and support.

Many of the teachers have trained with us and we have a strong commitment to ensuring that teachers are equipped to be able to manage the challenges of today’s educational landscape. We understand the difficulties around recruitment and retention in the teaching profession and believe that high quality training and on-going support can reduce the number of teachers leaving the profession within 5 years.


From 2019 we are delighted, therefore, to be able to recruit students in partnership with Suffolk and Norfolk SCITT. We have chosen SCITT as our main training provider due to its excellent reputation for providing high quality training. Lionwood Teaching School offers 5 additional training sessions with a range of specialists from the Trust. These sessions are designed to give students extra practical training in key areas such as Behaviour Management, Speech Language and Communication, Data and Assessment, Special Educational needs and Disability and English as an Additional Language.
