We are a partner of GORSE SCITT (formerly Leeds Teaching School Alliance) which offers a dynamic route into teaching, providing high quality Initial Teacher Training around Leeds. New entrants to the teaching profession are able to train directly with the SCITT in schools within The GORSE Academies Trust and also in partner schools in the local area.
The trust has an outstanding record of recruiting trainees from its programme to newly qualified teaching positions within its schools and graduates from the SCITT are in high demand in schools outside of the Alliance.
The Ruth Gorse Academy has benefited significantly from the SCITT programme and is delighted to have as a part of its staff team many former trainees from the SCITT and its legacy School Direct work. This now includes several colleagues with significant responsibilities within the academy across the whole range of subjects.
