Lets Celebrate!



On Wednesday 27thJune 2018 the Dacorum Teaching School Alliance (DSTA), in Hemel Hempstead, 2017/2018 first cohort of trainees celebrated completing their training year with a graduation ceremony at Dacorum Education Support Centre.

Our 3 teacher trainees, trainee mentors and NQTs came together with their NQT tutors to look back over the past year, celebrated their successes and received their certificates.

The celebration saw key speeches from the Lead Initial Teacher Training Lead, NQT tutors and from the Trainees. The Head Teacher of the Teaching School also addressed the new trainee teachers and shared her advice about teaching and working in Dacorum.

One trainee commented that; “It has undoubtedly been a challenging year – and at times it has felt like an unattainable goal. But we have received an enormous amount of support from our mentors, staff at the school and from each other. We feel ready and well prepared for the next stage of our career due to training and development that we received.

The DTSA is extremely proud of all of the trainee’s teachers and NQTS that we have supported throughout 2017.  We are excited to be welcoming 14 new trainee teachers as well as some NQTs - this year we are even more committed and dedicated to nurturing and developing transformational teachers who are aspirational, caring and motivated about improving the life changes of the young people that they teach and work with in Dacorum and throughout their teaching career.

If you have been inspired by the achievements of our Trainee Teachers who successfully passed their training year and started teaching in September 2018 or you may wish to reignite your passion for teaching again – then don’t delay contact us by emailing: express an interest.
