1 Primary Catholic Partnership School-centred Initial Teacher Training Paul Haslam Programme Director Portsmouth Diocesan Schools’ Day, November 2012

2 Background Established by Catholic primary schools in Portsmouth Diocese and accredited to offer QTS in First PGCE trainees Trained around 300; about 200 employed in Catholic schools across country; almost 100 in our own diocese Many now in middle management; several in leadership Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ in all areas inspected Secure allocation of 32 core training places from TA for two years; School Direct places can be additional to these

3 The Partnership Currently 30 primary schools from Portsmouth Diocese; 3 from Clifton Diocese; 1 from Plymouth Diocese Accreditation partners: PCP (awards QTS); Diocese (awards CCRS); St Mary’s University College (awards PGCE and Masters) Small number of core staff; extensive network of tutors, mentors and expertise Brand new, larger training centre opening at Holy Family Catholic Primary at edge of Southampton in January 2013

4 The PCP PGCE Leads to QTS; PGCE; 2 modules of MA Education; 2 specialist modules of CCRS 40 week programme with 22 weeks in school 2 placements in Catholic primary schools Personalised programme; extensive feedback Owned and shaped by partnership schools No charge to schools; PCP pays fee for placements Highly cohesive, ‘professional family’

5 How we support trainee teachers Competitive fees of £8,400 to attract applicants from variety of backgrounds Government bursaries which help SCITTs encourage students with good degrees to enter teaching: - 1st Class degree - £9, degree - £4,000 Administration of monthly payments to trainees Help with travel, accommodation in shortage areas, laptops for loan and a small, flexible hardship fund

6 Recruitment In a typical year, 2/3 of PCP recruits are Catholic (3/4 in 2011); those from other backgrounds are required to have ‘empathy’; most of these are local. Challenge 1 - Find and recruit every Catholic graduate in the diocese who is a potential primary teacher Challenge 2 - Continue to encourage people to move from other parts of the country, particularly North West and North East England; and from Northern Ireland and the Republic Challenge 3 - Ensure our support for new initiatives does not have an adverse impact on our core provision

7 What we’re able to offer Catholic ethos, understanding and sense of mission Thirteen years of (hard-won) expertise Pool of high quality tutors and mentors Heads with insights into needs and challenges Understanding of regulation and compliance Strong admin for checking eligibility, recruitment, student finance, registration, tracking, contracting, partnership agreements, placements, exam boards Capacity to help match suitable teachers to schools

8 What can we do together? Help us secure future Catholic teachers and leaders Continue to highlight the special nature of Catholic schools and the joy to be found in teaching Become a partner, offer placements, shape developments Help publicise PCP and recruit trainees Employ our graduates and spread the word Consider us as the provider for accrediting School Direct Offer your colleagues professional development opportunities e.g. as mentors or teachers on programme Sustain and nurture the PCP and Diocesan Education Alliance

9 School Direct – possible models QTS accredited by PCP QTS accredited by PCP with PGCE accredited by St Mary’s QTS accredited by PCP with two modules of MA Education from St Mary’s University College or other university QTS accredited by other provider, plus specialist CCRS modules from PCP (e.g. Collective worship; planning and delivering ‘God Matters’; new, bespoke module) Alternatively - Join existing partnership and work with us to develop placements for trainees in your cluster

10 Celebration and thanks For the vision of the founding schools To our partner schools which help recruit and place PCP trainees and prepare them so well for teaching. To a particularly active core of small and larger schools which have sustained the partnership and consistently provided placements for a number of years For the time Headteachers give to Board, committees, selecting trainees and providing staff to teach and mentor. For the generosity of spirit that leads our schools to offer high quality services below the market rate – essential for building up funds for our new training centre.
