Think North East is a School Direct partnership led by Sedgefield Community College, working closely with a number of other successful schools. Using the School Direct route, we offer teacher training placements in schools located across County Durham, Sunderland and Newcastle upon Tyne. Where other training providers might see you placed in schools located far and wide, we can work with you to ensure you are placed in schools that allow you to carry out your other commitments whilst training.
All schools in the Think North East partnership share one vision, to ensure we provide the highest quality training possible for people choosing to enter the teaching profession. No matter which schools you train in, you will be highly supported in developing as a skilled teacher.
As our name suggests, we are a partnership with a shared commitment to giving careful thought to all aspects of our initial teacher training programme. We strive to develop teachers who are able to think critically and creatively about their practice in order to make rapid progress in their role as a teacher.
