Training to teach with NTTC

Teaching is one of the most exciting, rewarding and challenging careers you can choose.

Why train to teach with us?

Everything we do is about training outstanding teachers. We are dedicated to our trainees and their future in this dynamic and rewarding profession. Trainees are at the centre of our teaching programme. We are known for our flexibility and aim to deliver high quality bespoke programmes leading to outstanding success. 

We have strong links with over 55 partner schools, Academies and Colleges, and we aim to provide high quality teachers for our Norfolk and Suffolk schools to positively change the lives of their pupils.

We are aware of specific issues in relation to Norfolk and Suffolk schools such as, mixed age teaching, Forces children, SEND needs and the quality of diversity in the County. We train our teachers to challenge racism and teach true diversity.  

Uniquely, we provide the Post Graduate Teacher Apprenticeship (PGTA) route into teaching. This has met the needs of our Primary schools as we have doubled the PGTA numbers in one year.  

Our core values

  • Inclusivity 
  • An unwavering belief in all trainee's potential 
  • A passion for excellence 
  • Personal responsibility/commitment/integrity 
  • Trust and Respect for others 
  • All stakeholders are critical to the process
