‘Outstanding’ again for Ripley!

We are delighted to be able to share with you that Ripley ITT has been judged to be Outstanding by Ofsted. Ofsted Inspectors reported that “trainees experience a first-class ITE curriculum at Ripley ITT. As a result, all trainees, including teacher apprentices, are exceptionally well prepared to assume their role as early career teachers (ECTs).”

Felicity Ackroyd, SCITT Director said:

“We are delighted that the inspection team recognised the excellent work that the Ripley ITE team, South Cumbria School Direct and our partner schools do to ensure exceptional training for teachers. Ripley ITE provides an essential service to the local community by providing excellently well-prepared teachers to local schools.

The Ofsted report identifies that ‘trainees flourish’ and ‘become influential and innovative practitioners, who are soon ready to take up leadership responsibilities’

We would like to thank the whole Ripley ITT partnership, including staff, governors, partner school staff, teacher apprentice partners and the trainees and teacher apprentices for their contribution to creating outstanding provision.

Ripley ITT provides a number of routes to train primary and secondary teachers, including a core provider route, the teacher apprenticeship and assessment only pathway.
