Developing Teachers Schools Academies (DTSA) are committed to high quality training that impacts on the learning experiences of every child’s education. We have worked closely with the University of Derby to design and develop an innovative Initial Teacher Training & Education programme linked with our specialism of high-quality teaching in a variety of educational settings.
All trainee teachers within our alliance meet every half term to engage with our enhanced and enriched curriculum. This is delivered by outstanding practitioners from our schools and is an opportunity for you to consider your development as a teacher and reflect upon practice within different settings. Past trainees have found these sessions invaluable and we are proud to say that 100% of our trainees have gone on to secure successful teaching positions.
Developing Teachers Schools Academies (DTSA) has strong links with the Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) in the Derbyshire area and is uniquely placed to offer training at Primary level on Science to help with the course content and practical ideas for teaching. This is important in securing a teaching post within the Derby and Derbyshire area because of our strong STEM economy.
“Amazing support from DTSA always available to discuss any issues always given good advice and has looked out for each and every one of us.”
