New partnership brings opportunities for would-be teachers in Lincolnshire

10 Oct 2020   |   Elizabeth Hudson

A new partnership between Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln and Wellspring Academy Trust is creating more opportunities for people to train to teach in schools across Lincolnshire.

Teaching training opportunities are available for graduates in primary, secondary, special and alternative provision schools, with applications being accepted now for the next academic year. Schools offering training places under Wellspring’s Positive Regard Teaching School Alliance training programme include Beacon Academy in Cleethorpes, Littlecoates Primary Academy in Grimsby, and Eastfield Infants’ and Nursery Academy and Lacey Gardens Junior Academy in Louth.

Chris Jessup, Director of Learning at Wellspring, said: “Teaching is the best job in the world and at the heart of great teaching are great relationships. This training scheme is distinctive because of the values that underpin its approach and, in line with Wellspring’s values, it develops teachers who put children’s wellbeing front and centre. If you want to truly make a difference to the lives of children in Lincolnshire, please consider applying.”

“With the demand for teachers continuing to grow across Lincolnshire and beyond, this new partnership will allow more people to follow their ambitions. These teacher training places are open to all graduates, and people considering changing career are more than welcome to apply. This offers a perfect opportunity for people who want to make a difference in their local communities through improving the life chances of young people.”

The training combines study at Bishop Grosseteste University with practical learning in a school-based setting, resulting
in a PGCE qualification, Qualified Teacher Status and Masters credits.

Wellspring is a large multi-academy trust currently comprising 25 primary, secondary, special and alternative academies across Yorkshire and Greater Lincolnshire. The Trust has built eight new schools around the region and operates a number of non-profit and charitable enterprises all aimed at improving lives of young people.
