Carmel College

At Carmel Teacher Training Partnership, we have been inspiring the next generation of teachers for over 20 years. Considered an Outstanding provider by Ofsted (2018), we now work with 6 lead schools throughout the North East of England, successfully training Primary (5-11) and Secondary (11-16) teachers in many subject areas.

Based at Carmel College, one of the top performing schools in the country also judged Outstanding by OFSTED in 2013, our pursuit of excellence is our ethos, based upon the expectation that everyone strives for quality, and we bring that passion and commitment to everything we do. Recognised as one of the leading teacher training providers, we ensure that our training programme is personalised for the individual needs of our trainees.

We would like to offer you the opportunity to gain first-hand classroom experience alongside our expert colleagues at Carmel College or one of our partner primary schools to give you an insight into the rewarding career that teaching is.
