Our Partnership Schools

RCTTP works in close partnership with primary and secondary schools in Redcar and Cleveland, Middlesbrough, East Cleveland, Whitby and North Yorkshire (Stokesley) and Darlington (Richmond).



We also work with the University of Hull to offer the opportunity to study for a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). All tutorials and training sessions take place at our training centre - students do not need to travel to Hull.

Ofsted Report 2016

I was asked during my interview why I chose this training programme instead of any other. I thought it would give me the best training of any that I’d found and I stand by that even more now. The support and guidance I got was exemplary.


This course really is fantastic. I feel personally that I could not have been given a better start to my teaching career.


Trainees have stated to me that all sessions without exception have been valuable to them mainly because they felt the nature and the content of the sessions had been well thought out and prepared in detail making them highly relevant to their classroom experiences

Partnership Tutor

The quality of training at Redcar and Cleveland Teacher Training Partnership is outstanding, and, as a result, trainees achieve high outcomes.

Ofsted Report 2016

One of the many strengths the RCTTP course offers is the high standard of support to trainees and I am especially thankful for that and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this course
