FREquently asked questions

We are not currently in partnership but have a teaching assistant that we would like to support through the salaried route; do we have to join the partnership?

Yes you do; some schools do decide to join for just 1 academic year to support staff. We are happy to do this for Greater Manchester Schools. It is important that the school agrees and complies with the conditions partnership agreement and we hope that schools do decide to continue working with us.

We currently work with other providers; can we still join your partnership?

Yes, we do not expect partnership to be exclusive, schools can partner with several different ITT providers.

Do you only work with Ofsted ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ school?

No we welcome enquiries from all schools.

We are currently a lead school for school direct and we are looking for accreditation/ a new accrediting body; does NMITTP offer this?

Yes we welcome enquiries; please do contact us for more details.

Do I need to find my own placement school for the training route programme?

No, NMITTP will find placement school for all training route trainees.
