The Confederation for the Education of South East Teachers (CESET) is a joint venture between six initial teacher training providers, who are working together to promote teaching in the region.
On the CESET website, prospective teachers can search for a CESET school in which to gain experience and download a resource pack to support their visit. They can also view details about the application process in our interactive journey map and hear from current student teachers in a range of videos. A unique feature of the site is the filtering tool, which enables potential teachers to easily search for training courses which could be available to them across the region, filtering by a range of options including location and part-time study.
As the portal develops, it will become a focus for recruitment to teacher vacancies in schools and for resources to support the development of new teachers and their mentors.
NAHT is working with both CESET and Canterbury Christ Church University to better understand the barriers ITT providers face in recruiting high-quality trainees to the profession.
