Our partnership of colleges and schools are all dedicated to developing outstanding teachers of tomorrow. We are guided by a commitment to doing what is right for the students in our partnership schools and what is right for our trainees. We pride ourselves on being a caring provider. It is this care that impacts everything we do – we nurture our trainees to discover their teaching potential. 
High-quality training enables all trainees to develop into confident and competent professionals. Trainees are well prepared through first-rate placements which ensure that they gain substantial practical experience, developing their evaluative and practical teaching skills effectively. This is within a home school placement, four days a week, with the fifth day spent receiving General Professional Studies and subject specific training. In-school expert mentors and external subject trainers have consistently high expectations and work collaboratively to ensure training is coherent and highly relevant to the needs of trainees. 
With the vast majority of our trainees going on to be employed and progressing their careers within our partnership of training colleges, there really is no better place to embark on your journey than with the Borromeo Training Hub.  
You will have the opportunity to train in one of our highly innovative partner colleges who put students and their learning at the heart of everything they do.
