East Bergholt High School is proud to be a partnership school for Ormiston Teacher Training (OTT). Ormiston Teacher Training delivers high-quality teacher education across four regional campuses situated in the West Midlands, Staffordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. They are committed to high quality, evidence-informed teacher education and are on a mission to improve the quality of teacher development across the system.

OTT's initial teacher training (ITT) programme, in partnership with the National Institute of Teaching (NIoT), is a fully immersive school-centred programme – aspiring teachers will be in the classroom from the very start. They are fully supported, and each trainee has a dedicated mentor and core training sessions once a week with the Ormiston Teacher Training team.

As an Associate College of the NIoT, they are in the privileged position of being able to offer aspiring teachers a programme that is rooted in national research whilst reflecting the local contexts of the schools and communities in which they will work. Their future teachers will learn from established experts, including teachers, teacher educators, and specialists in teacher professional development, all of whom are authorities in their fields.

By training to teach with OTT, you’ll have the confidence of knowing that you are participating in a programme that was designed by some of the most experienced teachers and leaders in the country, drawn from four leading school trusts with decades of teacher training between them. They also know from experience what headteachers look for in new teachers – so they'll ensure that you develop the skills necessary for finding an early career teacher (ECT) role.

OTT's teacher training courses lead to QTS (Qualified Teacher Status), a PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) and 60 master’s level credits.
