Teacher Training

At Ladycross, we have a long history of involvement with training future teachers. We have worked with Nottingham Trent University and the University of Derby to offer placements with us. We have also helped to train teachers as part of the Graduate Teacher Programme.

All students placed with us are given a welcome pack of key policies and information, and a mentor and named staff member that will give support during their time with us. Current teachers are trained as mentors for teaching students to ensure that they get the right kind of support and coaching. We have accommodated students in their first to fourth years as well as graduates. Some past students have been employed by Ladycross. We have also been a host school for future school leaders and we have accommodated NPQH placements.

Our policy on Teacher Training is available upon request. Please email headteacher@ladycross.derbyshire.sch.uk for a copy.
