School Direct Teacher Training

At The Marvell College we have exciting opportunities for you to train to become a qualified teacher through School Centred Initial Teacher Training in partnership with Vantage North Humber Teacher Training, The University of York and GORSE SCITT. We have a strong track record of providing high quality teacher training and school experience and many current Marvell staff trained with us.

An outline of the providers that we work with are below.

All training routes are supported by in-house professional development delivered by our strongest teachers, and leaders. All trainees are considered as members of our community and afforded all the same opportunities as those employed by The Marvell College.

University of York

As an ‘Outstanding’ provider, the aim of the Partnership between the University of York and schools is to provide high-quality initial teacher training, such that all trainees have the opportunity to meet and exceed the Teachers’ Standards for the award of QTS.

The joint University and schools program enables trainees to demonstrate professional values and practice, alongside providing professional development opportunities for colleagues within the Partnership.

GORSE SCITT is one of a very small number of Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ teacher training providers nationally. Our central aim is to train exceptional teachers to work with our most disadvantaged young people.

Our core responsibility is to provide trainees with the best possible start to their career. Expertly using the Initial Teacher Training Core Content Framework and our curriculum for central and subject training, we ensure that all our trainee teachers receive a structured package of excellent support.

Vantage North Humber Teacher Training

Vantage North Humber Teacher Training has been a centre of excellence in teacher training for many years, and a significant number of teachers in Hull have come through our programmes and can vouch for the calibre of the training and support we provide.

Our secondary programmes are delivered in partnership with The Marvell College, Kelvin Hall School, the Boulevard Academy and St Mary’s College. You are guaranteed to be placed in successful departments, with excellent teachers and mentors.

We pride ourselves on the supportive, friendly, and developmental nature of our training programmes and the very high employment rates (usually 100%) for our trainees, most of whom typically gain their first teaching job within our partnership or other local schools.
