Community First Academy Trust is entirely committed to safeguarding children and adults and has robust safeguarding policies in place  which follow both local and national legislation and guidance. These place a duty upon every employee who has contact with children, adults and families in their everyday work to safeguard and promote their welfare. The Trust has nominated safeguarding leads who advise and support professionals when they raise concerns about a child or adult’s welfare. 

All our schools and partners are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment any concern(s) should be raised without delay to Mr M Haskayne.

Deciding what route to choose for your teacher training can be difficult, so we offer applications throughout the year the opportunity to find out more and see why Kingsbridge should be your first choice. 

Please see our events calendar for a list of our 'Train to Teach' Drop in Sessions which will take place in Wigan at the Kingsbridge Teacher Training Centre. Our SCITT team will be on hand to offer support and advice about how to apply as well as information about bursaries and funding.

Kingsbridge is judged twice Outstanding by Ofsted for both primary and secondary initial teacher training (ITT).

We offer a comprehensive training package, focusing on the coaching and mentoring of trainee teachers across primary and secondary phases of education. Learning from current practitioners our trainees achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a PGCE (from Manchester University) by the end of the course. A wide range of bursaries are also available for most subjects.

The course offers a bespoke teacher training package supporting individual trainees and a nurturing atmosphere in which to train to be the best teacher you can possibly be. We work with local schools to deliver training across Wigan and the Greater Manchester region. There are excellent employment prospects for all subjects and phases, with all past trainees currently in employment.

Kingsbridge SCITT is the longest established school-based teacher training provider in Wigan. We are proud to deliver training by outstanding teachers, specialist leaders in education and national leaders of education in both Primary and Secondary education.
