National Online Teacher Training (NOTT)

The NOTT Programme

Your school based placements will start in September 2021 with the support of our online training programme and dedicated tutors. There is no need for you to attend centre or university-led lectures.

Teacher Training Enhancement Programme (TTEP)

The TTEP suite of online resources takes you through the Professional Studies 1 and Subject Studies that you need at the start of your teacher training. Professional Studies 2 builds on this to extend and improve your teaching. This is supported by our pedagogy sessions that are aligned with the Teachers’ Standards to provide coherent examples of best practice.

Access to your dedicated online support package

This is a suite of online facilities that allows trainees’ progress on the ITT to be tracked. This includes tools for lesson observations, mentor meetings, evidence tracking, and checkpoint assessments against the Teachers’ Standards.

School-based mentor support

You will have a dedicated school-based mentor who will help you to integrate into the school and offer support and advice during the training year.

Dedicated support via NOTT tutor

Your dedicated NOTT tutor will support you through your training and will work with you and your mentor to help you gain QTS.
