Initial Teacher Training

WELCOME - School Direct ITT

Exeter Consortium is a partnership of schools in Exeter in South West England, established and managed by the schools themselves.  It offers an exceptional opportunity to learn to teach in local schools with outstanding providers.  The attractive setting of an historic regional capital at the heart of one of the most desirable areas of the country makes this an irresistible location to live and learn in.  Our partner training organisations are the University of Exeter and South West Teacher Training, both highly regarded by Ofsted and based in the city.
