Spencer Apprenticeships

Spencer Apprenticeships is committed to high quality professional training for the education sector, supporting excellence in education and securing best possible outcomes for children and young people. Our vision is to support schools in how they recruit, train and retain exceptional staff using evidence informed principles and skilled trainers. 


Our Vision

  • To deliver an inspirational, evidence-rich learning experience supported through our values and commitment to excellence in education 
  • To support the growth and success of our partner schools 
  • To be the preferred place to learn, work and progress
  • To be a leading specialist training provider in the education sector within Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire 


We will  be launching from September 2021 and in our first year, we are offering our trust and SCITT partner schools an exclusive training opportunity to help grow members of our teams, such as teaching assistants and unqualified teachers, to take the next step in their professional journey. 


The Teacher Apprenticeship

The programme sees schools employ Teacher Apprentices and utilise apprenticeship funding for initial teacher training (ITT). The apprentice will achieve QTS and then their End-Point Assessment within the first term of their NQT year to pass the apprenticeship.

If you would like to find out more, please click here for our dedicated ‘Teacher Apprenticeships’ webpage – you will find information for both potential apprentices and partner schools as employers when considering this pathway for teacher training. If you would like specific details of our recruitment process for the academic year 2021-2022, please get in touch with our SCITT team. 

We are excited about this new opportunity to support our partner schools to train and retain staff and ensure high quality teaching in all our settings. As an employer-provider, we bring our passion and expertise to this new field and look forward to future developments. 

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team.
