Teacher Training at Rivers Academy West London

We have a well-established history of providing excellent training for aspiring teachers on a range of routes.  As part of the Aspirations Academies Trust’s (AAT) vision, we are actively embracing and innovating in the changing Initial Teacher Training (ITT) landscape which is seeing schools take a leading role in training the teachers of tomorrow.  However, just like for our own students, we believe in meeting the needs of the individual.  As such, we support the following range of new and tried and tested routes into teaching:
