TADSS ITT Partnership

About us

The Teaching Alliance of Dorset Special Schools ITT Partnership was formed to ensure local, Primary phased teacher training continues in Dorset. We offer an opportunity to train with a group of outstanding schools, with an outstanding ITT prover and to support trainees in taking their first steps on the pathway to becoming an outstanding teacher.

Our academic partner, the University of Exeter, is one of the top 3 providers of teacher training in the country and is rated outstanding by Ofsted. By completing the programme and passing the course, trainees will gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with 60 credits towards a Masters degree, awarded by the University of Exeter.

The school partnership extends across Dorset and includes 29 schools.
