Initial Teacher Training at Wootey



To provide the best education to our children, we need teachers who are trained to the highest standards, who are creative, dedicated, empathetic and knowledgeable, whether they are new to the profession or experienced school staff, which is why Wootey Junior is proud to be part of the Alton Cluster of the Foundations Teaching School Alliance.


As an Alliance, the sole aim of the FTSA is to support, train and shape the teachers of today and tomorrow in Early Years and Primary education by providing:

Initial Teacher Training (ITT)
Continuous Professional Development (CPD) including workshops on Autism, Sensory Processing, Motor skills and many more
School to School/PVI Support to improve standards in other settings
