Lionheart Teach

Lionheart Teach supports ITE and Early Career Teachers across our schools, providing the foundations for excellence in our classrooms and school partnerships.

Lionheart Teach is committed to delivering outstanding initial teacher education and early career induction through our bespoke ITE and ECF programmes. Run by the Lionheart Educational Trust we aim to develop excellent, expert teachers within our schools and across Leicester and Leicestershire.

The Lionheart Educational Trust seeks to develop teachers to work within our partnership and provide our students with high quality teaching that secures academic excellence and holistic development.

Working in close partnerships as lead partners with both the University of Leicester and Nottingham Trent University, we support both the academic studies and practice placements of their PGCE programmes leading to both the award of PGCE and QTS and masters credits.

In school, placements take place across our diverse range of settings. Our common trust systems in behaviour, Beehive (our online platform) and outstanding common curriculum ensures a smooth transition between placements, a huge benefit to our trainees as they navigate the early years in the profession.

Our ECTs follow the Ambition Institutes ECF, supported by the Leicestershire and Rutland Teaching School Hub but delivered by our very own Lionheart Visting Fellows. We invest in collaboration across our schools bringing together our ECTs to drive improvement and share the very best research driven practice in our classrooms and the practice of instructional coaching and support from subject expert mentors and coaches.

We will support and guide you on your journey to becoming an excellent classroom practitioner.
