Training With Us

The Pioneer Learning Trust works in partnership with The Shire Foundation and a number of local schools to provide Initial Teacher Training (ITT) opportunities.

Chantry Primary Academy is the Lead School offering a full ITT training programme provided in partnership with Shire Foundation, supporting both salaried and non-salaried options through PGCE and School Direct programmes.

We will work with trainees and our partner schools to find an appropriate placement for each individual.  If trainees have already agreed a placement with one of our partners we will support the school and trainee to ensure that everything is in place, including the alternative school placement, always endeavouring to find an appropriate swap wherever possible.  Our partner schools are as follows (please click on the school to access their website for further information about the school):
