About us

Have you ever thought about training to become a teacher?

Due to the pandemic, we are currently unable to run our face-to-face Open Days but please contact us by email at info@ndtsa.org or call 01271 440898 for information about our School Direct Initial Teacher Training programme.   We have responded to the current situation by providing informational video links and a series of virtual Question & Answer sessions, where key NDTSA staff will be available to answer your questions.  Please submit your application via UCAS – we are interviewing for 2021-22 Primary ITT places currently.  PLEASE NOTE:  Due to popular demand we no longer have places available for Secondary ITT 2021-22.

We very much look forward to hearing from you soon and to meeting you in the near future. 

We are passionate about helping primary and secondary schools achieve outstanding and ensure the best possible outcomes for their pupils through collaborative working. We offer a wide range of services from full federation, to collaborative working, courses and bespoke training or assistance with school improvement and governance.  Our highly trained Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) have experience working with individual teachers, students and TAs, middle and senior leaders as well as the whole staff.

At the NDTSA we are committed to developing the next generation of teachers and leaders.

We are dedicated to continuing this professional development from NQT and into leadership with a wide range of courses, CPD opportunities and research projects.
