Since 2015-16, Ignite, in partnership with the University of Chester and a wide range of Leading Practitioners, has developed an outstanding Teacher Training Course. We are delighted with our employment rates over the last 6 years and are looking forward to developing the next cohort of Associate Teachers in 2022-23 and beyond.

Please click on the success stories link to see reflections from some of our trainees about the training programme and the current successes they are enjoying.

“The programme is unbelievably thorough in terms of what is needed by Associate Teachers and Mentors. It has been put together brilliantly and we are really excited about being part of it!”
