Teacher Training

St Edward's offers a high quality placement for all trainee teachers through the Partnership London SCITT. We work in partnership with the London SCITT to deliver a comprehensive training programme for trainee teachers ensuring that they become competent classroom practitioners. The trainees are supported by experienced mentors in the classroom during the programme as well as the PLS tutors who provide expert advice and guidance.

About Partnership London SCITT 

‘Training high quality practitioners to inspire today’s learners to be tomorrow’s leaders.

Partnership London SCITT (PLS) is dedicated to developing and improving education in East London.

East London is a culturally rich, diverse and evolving community, and our aim is to recruit, train and retain the very best teachers for the young people in this community. At our core, we are a partnership and our mission focuses on the following three elements of teacher training and education:


Our learner centred curriculum aims to create a learning community rooted in continual reflection and professional dialogue between PLS teachers, expert colleagues and the learners they serve. 


Our subject centred curriculum recognises the importance of knowledge and encourages commitment to lifelong learning as subject/phase specialists. 


Our society centred curriculum encourages PLS teachers to serve, promote and challenge the community of the PLS partnership. 

PLS is led by a team of educational experts with a wealth of experience and knowledge. This team is supported by high quality practitioners, still practising in schools across East London.
