A new way to approach initial teacher training (ITT).

What is the Luminate Partnership for ITT?

The Luminate Partnership for ITT is an agreement between members of Luminate Education Group and its partners to accelerate the supply and preparation of high quality teachers, through the provision of non-traditional routes into teaching.

University Centre Leeds, a member of Luminate Education Group, is the training provider for the range of ITT courses that are on offer to trainees. The programmes are underpinned by an integrated curriculum that connects classroom and centre-based practice. The Luminate partners will offer mentoring and placements, providing irreplicable opportunities.
