Ashlawn School

Transforming Lives Educational Trust works with a variety of partner secondary schools across the midlands and primary schools in and around Rugby. We offer SEP mainly at Ashlawn School for secondary training, and can arrange primary training in certain circumstances. Initially we will have a conversation to discuss your eligibility and potential routes into teaching and then arrange a visit if appropriate. If you are successful at interview for teacher training we then arrange for you to visit the partner school who would be hosting you for your training to ensure you are happy with your potential placement before accepting your place on our course.
