Introducing the partnership

The Rodillian Multi Academy Trust Training Alliance are delighted to offer the opportunity to train through the School Direct Local initiative. At Rodillian we are committed to doing things differently – creating schools that students want to attend, and where teachers want to work.

We have successfully transformed a number of academies across Yorkshire and in 2018; we were recognised as the highest performing group of schools in the country. We raise aspiration levels for staff, students and schools by encouraging creativity in the classroom, and by giving our staff freedom to experiment with their teaching.

We have a nationally recognised behaviour system, which allows teachers to concentrate on ensuring the best possible outcomes for our young people. When you train with us, the behaviour system in all your placement schools is the same, so you can concentrate on developing your practice.

We strive to develop a growth mind-set in each of our young people and our staff – a belief that intelligence is not fixed or inherited, but can be improved if we learn from our mistakes and continually work hard. In conjunction with Leeds Trinity University, we have developed an exciting one-year programme which will give you the opportunity to experience schools in a range of contexts, gaining a PGCE at the end of the year.
