What is the partnership?

SWWCTE works closely with schools and colleges across South Wales to offer the highest possible standard of training to future teachers. Our students spend an important part of their course observing and teaching in our partner institutions, and the university tutors and classroom mentors and senior mentors work as a team to ensure that our trainees enjoy the maximum benefit from their teaching experience. We hold mentor and senior mentor development events and are developing a programme of special CPLD opportunities for our Partnership. The Centre Partnership Committee meets regularly throughout the year to discuss strategic and practical aspects of our work. If you would like to find out more about our Partnership Committee or aspects of the CPLD opportunities, do contact us.
