The 2Schools Consortium consists of two main partner 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

From September 2014 all trainees on the 2Schools Consortium School Direct Salaried and SCITT Programme will have the opportunity to work towards a PGCE award which will be validated by the University of East London.
