Teacher training in Sheffield & the Peak District
This hub is led by Silverdale School, an accredited provider of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and an outstanding secondary comprehensive. Recognised by the Sunday Times as the Top State School in the North of the Decade in 2020.
This hub also offers the additional opportunity to train to be a teacher of Mandarin, thanks to our partnership with the Swire Chinese Language Foundation. Tapton School leads the Swire Chinese Language Centre in Sheffield and can offer relevant placements for our trainees.
Within this hub we have a strong network of existing primary, special and secondary schools in South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire, due to the work of Silverdale’s Teaching School – the Sheffield Teaching School Alliance (STSA). STSA’s success in training teachers in a range of subjects led to the Department for Education asking them to lead the National Modern Languages SCITT.
