A remarkable record of 100 per cent success has been achieved on the fifth anniversary of a teacher-training alliance that provides classroom staff for 25 east London schools.

All students have secured posts after graduating at the London East Teacher Training Alliance, which was set up in 2013 to fill a gap in recruiting and retaining to maintain classroom standards.

Nine-out-of-10 have found jobs in Tower Hamlets or Newham schools, the rest elsewhere.

They held a reunion at the Poplar Union which coincided with an Ofsted inspection that has judged the alliance ‘outstanding’ for its training and success rate.

The Alliance trains up to 40 teachers a year at its centre in Poplar’s Stebon Primary school, “making a significant contribution” to supplying and retaining classroom staff in east London, according to Ofsted.

It has trained “outstanding teachers” for schools on a solid community foundation, inspectors noted.

Half the students came from east London, with a higher than average male and minority-ethnic intake.

The Teachers’ Alliance, with its universities links, is a partnership of 25 Tower Hamlets and Newham schools which are currently graded ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.

It runs training programmes for first-year and second-year teachers, as well as courses and support for more experienced practitioners and schools.
