Since 2015-16, Ignite TSA, 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 5 years and are looking forward to developing the next cohort of Associate Teachers in 2020-21 and beyond.
