The 2Schools Consortium has accredited status. We award QTS (Qualified Teacher Status).
The 2Schools Consortium consists of a lead school, Oakthorpe Primary School, Enfield, and a number of partnership schools where trainees are placed.
Oakthorpe has been successfully involved in teacher training since 2002 and has a wealth of experience in mentoring trainees and in delivering training.
All trainees on the 2Schools Consortium School Direct Salaried and SCITT Programme have the opportunity to work towards a PGCE award which will be validated by the University of Brighton
“The Training Team are the best people for the job working at 2Schools. I think any teacher trainee would be lucky to be on this program and should always know that support is only a message, email of phone call away. Thank you for helping my start my new journey and new career!” George Regan, QTS July 2020
“Overall, I’ve been so pleased with the training. I’ve looked forward to the weekly lectures/seminars like a child anticipating a regular visit to a doting relative. The training sessions felt so welcoming and familial and I’ll miss them and the friends I made there terribly. It moves me to think about how much the training team care about us. You were/are clearly amazing teachers because you bring all of that ‘duty of care’ mentality to 2Schools, going above and beyond to meet the needs of everyone in the cohort. The whole of Enfield owes you a debt of gratitude for the skills and ideals that you have instilled in hundreds of teachers; hundreds of teachers who’ve taught thousands of children, such is the extent of your guiding and educating influence. Thank you for giving me a career and a purpose. Just like those special teachers we remember from school, I’ll never forgot you.” Philip Barrett, QTS July 2020
“I always say how inspirational my training year was and how teaching was undoubtedly the best decision I ever made, so glad my own sister has decided to follow suit and is applying to you now!” Olivia Izzet, QTS with 2Schools in July 2017
… and the sister joined us in September 2019…“I had heard such great things about the 2schools course but I still could not have imagined just how much I would enjoy my training year! I felt so well supported, informed, inspired and mentored throughout the course. The team and my mentors have been amazing and I couldn’t recommend 2schools more.” Sophie Izzet, QTS July 2020
