Who We Are

Exchange Teacher Training is a DfE-accredited provider of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in England.

We are founded upon a well-established partnership of credible organisations in Yorkshire and the Humber, Northeast Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire, and the North East. Together, we are committed to the importance of 'exchange'; sharing our knowledge, skills and expertise generously for the benefit of young people in our communities. We strive to drive achievement, address disadvantage and raise the aspirations of the children we serve. 

Our initial teacher training is rooted in local, credible schools. You will be immersed in classroom practice from the very start, but you will not be alone. Your mentor will oversee your learning journey along with the lead mentor, subject lead and a dedicated central team, all devoted to ensuring your success on our programme. At weekly centre-based training, you and your peers will engage with the most recent and rigorous educational research and explore what great teachers know and do. We will support you to build professional friendships during your training that will last a lifetime.
