Introducing the partnership

The Yorkshire Rose Teaching Partnership offers high quality primary and secondary teacher training to graduates in a range of subjects. We offer the opportunity to work with dedicated professionals who are passionate and committed to providing the highest standard of education for the children and young people in diverse and relatively disadvantaged urban communities in West Yorkshire. 

We believe that the School Direct route enables us to select the best candidates and to provide the best support. We do not merely educate or train; we transform lives, both of trainee teachers and the students within the schools. This year-long, school based programme is devised and delivered by our partnership schools and our partner higher education institutions.

Batley Girls’ High School is the Lead School and is also part of the Inspiring Education Teaching Partnership which is an outstanding teaching school partnership. We customise placements and use a range of bespoke training packages, which will make the most of your knowledge and skills. You will be placed in two of The Yorkshire Rose Teaching Partnership schools and after a year’s successful training, you will achieve a PGCE with QTS.
