Our Initial Teacher Training Programme is designed to select, train and develop our Teachers of Tomorrow.


The programme delivery is in partnership between Clairvaux Teaching School and Notre Dame SCITT and provides our trainees with the practical experience of teaching at St Bernard’s whilst also developing understanding of pedagogy and research theory. Our core aim is to provide outstanding training and development to support our trainees through their ITT year and on to a successful and enriched Newly Qualified year.

If you are thinking about becoming a teacher and would like to learn about the process, we welcome prospective candidates to come and visit St Bernard’s and discuss the programme with our course leaders.
