New River Teaching Alliance (Haringey) & Teacher Training

Fortismere School leads on the UCL IOE Leadership Development Programmes (NPQs) which are a core part of our Teaching School Alliance (NRTA) approach to talent identification and succession planning. As one of the Strategic Partner Schools within the NRTA, we play a leading role in training the school leaders of tomorrow. Colleagues that apply to our leadership programmes come from a wide range of geographical locations across Haringey, London and the South East.

We deliver the national professional qualifications for senior leadership (Deputy and Assistant Headship/Associate role to Senior Leadership Team) and for middle leadership (Head of Department and Pastoral Leader), in close collaboration with the UCL Institute Of Education. This provides teachers with the opportunity to become successful middle and senior leaders and many of our past graduates have moved onto successful school leadership careers.

We also train new entrants to the profession via the School Direct route to become newly qualified teachers.
