DTSA is a broad and inclusive multiple Alliance of schools from all phases.
We are part of a not for profit Charitable Trust and we care deeply about improving learning for all. We believe that every child in every class, in every school deserves the best teaching and learning.
Realising moral purpose for us is about sharing and giving back – a sustained focus on developing open and trusting collaboration that contributes to ‘raising the bar and closing the gap’ in achievement for all children and especially those from disadvantaged groups.
Primary and Secondary School Direct Places for Sept. 2017
DTSA’s ITT programme is designed and delivered in partnership with local universities and offers QTS with PGCE and 60 masters credits. Please note that you are not applying to work at a specific school. Your individual training experience will lead to you being deployed in the schools which we feel will offer you the best possible opportunities to complete your training successfully. We have a large number of schools from all phases and contexts that host students.
Details on the UCAS application window will be advertised here shortly.
