The Faculty was recently awarded 'Outstanding' status by Ofsted, for its secondary programmes and all 3-7 and 5-11 primary/primary-early years programmes. In particular, Ofsted reported in its key findings:

  • The personalised approach to training, coupled with close individual support, ensures that trainees across all phases, regardless of any additional challenges they may face, have an equal chance to become good or better practitioners.
  • Strong professional attitudes, plus a willingness to seek out and act on advice, are common characteristics of all trainees across each phase.
  • Reflective and committed former trainees and NQTs are prepared well to put their training into practice and to take responsibility for their own future professional development.
