The Training Programme consists of two modules: Teachers as Researchers and Reflective Practitioners. Trainees divide their time between school placements and central training.

Trainees are based in a Lead School for four days a week for five terms. There is also a eight week second school placement in a contrasting environment.

Trainees can teach up to a 80% timetable. However, schools will ensure support and mentorship is clearly in place to help build up to this.

Central training takes place once a week in school training rooms throughout the Alliance. This training is carried out by Local Authority and SCITT Advisers, Headteachers/Leading Practitioners and Bucks New University lecturers. Training covers subject knowledge and generic elements of teaching such as Behaviour Management, Inclusion and Assessments.
