What is Lead Partner Route?

Image -

We are ranked in the top 3 universities in London for the quality of our research in the field of Education (REF 2021), reflecting the world-class expertise of our staff.

Lead Partner Route is a government-led initiative that seeks to place schools at the centre of Initial Teacher Education (ITE). Working with University of Roehampton, our partner schools take a leading role in recruiting trainee teachers and in designing and delivering the training programme.

In a 2023 report, Ofsted rated Roehampton's primary-age courses as "Outstanding". The inspection was conducted by nine of His Majesty’s inspectors and three Ofsted Inspectors. The University’s primary-age phase courses, that currently have 673 trainees, scored “Outstanding” for overall effectiveness, quality of education and training, leadership and management. The University’s secondary-age phase courses, that currently have 152 trainees, scored “Good”  - you can read more here. 

How you'll learn

 

There are two possible routes if you are thinking of training via Lead Partner Route:

Lead Partner Route (salaried)
This is open to high quality graduates, principally to people coming to teaching from other careers or those who may already have experience of working in a school setting. Applications are made to individual schools or alliances of schools, rather than to Roehampton. The schools pay a salary based on that of an unqualified teacher, but there is not government bursary paid for secondary specialisms that woud attract a bursary on the non-salaried routes. 

Lead Partner Route (tuition fee)
This route is open to all high quality graduates. Applications are made to individual schools or alliances of schools, rather than to Roehampton. Secondary trainees are paid bursaries for subjects that attract a bursary. 

Both primary and secondary routes lead to a PGCE with 60 master's credits on successful completion. There will be three assignments across the year like the university led routes. In addition to having a mentor in your school, you will be visited by a Roehampton tutor periodically throughout the year.

Validation and curriculum review

What is validation?
Validation is a formal process through which the University approves a programme (content, teaching, learning and assessment) as being of appropriate standard and quality. This is a normal process used throughout the university sector.

The University expects to publish details of the validated programme in the academic year prior to the start date of the programme. You are advised to check the University website at that time to ensure that you have up-to-date information. In the meantime, if you require information you should contact 0208 392 3232.

What is curriculum review?
Curriculum review is the regular and systematic monitoring and reviewing of programmes. It is a normal process in the sector and it is the way by which the university ensures that your course remains up-to-date and relevant. The process may result in changes to the content, structure and/or assessment of the programme.

The University expects to publish details of the re-validated programme by 31 March in the academic year prior to the start date of the programme. You are advised to check the University website at that time to ensure that you have up-to-date information. In the meantime, if you require information you should contact 0208 392 3232.
