Training according to your needs
We only offer places to small numbers of applicants compared to larger providers, so we can offer you flexible training plans to suit your individual training needs, and provide you with strong support.
Joint training for Primary and Secondary trainees
Joint training enables trainees to gain a greater understanding of transition, our joint training events provide opportunities to discuss common issues and approaches.
Excellent access to modern technology
Our trainee teachers will be provided with a laptop to use throughout the year, as well as access to a bank of iPads to use in their classrooms.
St George’s Academy
Alternative Provision Free School
St George’s Academy was opened by the Titan Partnership Trust. Trainees are able to carry out placements in this setting giving access to the latest behaviour management training.
Mayfield Special School
We have worked with Mayfield Special School for many years. Trainees are offered the opportunity to carry out a placement in this setting. We also conduct a whole day SEN training event at Mayfield School.
Coaching and Mentoring model
Our staff in schools use Curee’s Coaching and Mentoring approach to ensure trainees are fully supported and are able to take an active role in their own learning and professional development.
Communities of Practice
Trainees are invited to join Communities of Practice – groups of teachers from across our partnership schools who come together to discuss an area of joint interest. The groups’ focus is to share good practice and develop key areas. An excellent form of CPD.
Titan’s Director of 14-19 Education is based at St George’s Community Hub. We employ his expertise to give trainees access to information on the latest developments. Trainees visit a local college to see post 16 provision first hand.
Trainees are invited to attend meetings centred on professional conversations about learning in the classroom. Experts are invited to present on key topics.
NQT and Early Career Teacher Programmes
Titan is keen to continue to support trainees as they enter the first years of their careers. We offer a programme of support sessions for trainees to attend and also offer bespoke training based on the needs of ex trainees and the schools they are teaching in.
Apple Regional Training Centre
Titan is aiming to improve the quality of learning experiences and outcomes for young people through improving levels of teacher competence and confidence in the use of technologies. We can support teachers and others with useful and practical ideas to make learning relevant, fun and instant.
