LUTSA is based at St Thomas of Canterbury Primary School in Sheffield. This is an outstanding school with drive and passion to transform children’s lives through world class teaching.
LUTSA’s focus is Primary, Primary with Maths and Early Years teacher training. Their mission is to grow the highest calibre of teachers to meet the needs of the schools in the region. Feedback from their latest cohort of trainees was overwhelmingly positive with 100% rating the training at five out of five. For the past two years more than 75% of the cohort have been graded Outstanding by the end of the course, with the rest graded good.
LUTSA are currently working with 21 partner schools across Sheffield, Chesterfield and Doncaster. Over 85% of the cohort for the past two years have gained employment before the completion of the course and many in their partner schools. This is a high quality and individualised training route into teaching where you will learn alongside outstanding classroom practitioners and gain exceptional training experiences with input from their expert facilitators overseen by their Ofsted Outstanding Lead school.
As a Teaching School their trainees have access to many development opportunities that they run in addition to their training, including a Maths knowledge enhancement programme of 12 sessions to grow their confidence in teaching Primary Maths using Mastery techniques. Subject experts from the Mastery English Programme lead a series of grammar workshops for trainees throughout the year. LUTSA also collaborates with other providers to make sure their trainees get experiences from a range of contexts and experts in the region.
