The 2Schools Consortium consists of two main lead schools.

  1. Oakthorpe Primary School, Enfield
  2. Henry Maynard Primary School,
    Waltham Forest.

Both schools have been successfully involved in teacher training for a number of years and have a wealth of experience in mentoring trainees and in delivering training.

The Consortium has been in operation since 2002 and has gained a reputation for training high quality teachers.

The 2Schools Consortium has accredited status, which enables us to provide Initial Teacher Training via the School Direct (salaried) and SCITT Programme.

PGCE award with QTS

All trainees on the 2Schools Consortium School Direct Salaried and SCITT Programme have the opportunity to work towards a PGCE (Primary Education) award which will be validated by the University of East London.

UCAS Teacher Training now provides a single admission system for all HEIs and school-led routes into teching including SCITT, School Direct and School Direct (salaried).

We are still accepting applications in Enfield for the SCITT route and for the School Direct Salaried route in Waltham Forest and giving priority to those who have already passed their skills tests.

Further information about our SCITT programme will be available soon.
