Information Evenings for Initial Teacher Training

Teach Fenland and East Cambridgeshire is hosting information evenings to explain how you can train to teach in the region through the Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programme. These evenings will provide important information about the ITT and how you can benefit from the programme, which are set to be launched later this year.

These information evenings will offer the chance to learn about the ITT and how you will be supported through the process. At the information evening, you will learn about the qualifications needed to apply, the training you will receive and all other aspects of the programme.

No matter what stage of your career you are at, you are warmly invited to attend an information evening and hear about how you can progress your career, while making a difference to a school in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire.

There are three information evenings to choose from:

  1. 9th May 2019, 6 – 8pm at Cavalry Primary School, March
  2. 13th May 2019, 6 – 8pm at Orchards Church of England Primary School, Wisbech
  3. 16th May 2019, 6 – 8pm at Witchford Village College (in Resource Centre)

To reserve your place at an information evening, please contact Sarah McGill on

This new initiative has been funded by the Fenland and East Cambridgeshire Opportunity Area, who have invested over £6 million into teaching development across the region. In partnership with a number of teaching school alliances, schools in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire are expected to offer the ITT from 2020.

The ITT programme will provide a new route into the career for aspiring teachers across Fenland and East Cambridgeshire. The programme supports trainee teachers through work-based training, allowing individuals to learn about the key methods of teaching through academic study while immersing themselves in school and teaching culture.

The ITT will not only allow individuals to start their teaching career and receive invaluable work-based training, but also benefit each individual school by placing top graduates within their community to inspire and support the next generation.
