The University of Exeter highly values working in partnership with some 300 schools across the South West (and in London). The relationships are strong and seen as key strengths by Ofsted who praised the collaborative nature of the partnerships.

Coronavirus Covid-19

Should you have any concerns in relation to Coronavirus Covid-19 please refer to the university’s guidance on the following page - Please note that this page is updated regularly with regard to the guidance provided by the government.

Trainees and schools have been sent information about the ending of placements on Friday 20th March and work to do at home. 

We are still awaiting guidance from the DfE regarding the assessment of trainees against the Teachers’ Standards and the award of QTS and will update everyone when we have it. We are pushing hard for that information ASAP.

Next week, all trainees are not on placement and should be working on their assignment and other work sent. Until we have further guidance from the DfE regarding DBS and the point at which QTS will be awarded, we can’t answer questions about volunteering. 

The General Data Protection Regulations came into effect on 25 May 2018 and the ITE Partnership Office has specific Privacy Policies that relate to the data we hold for both our trainees and also the school staff who work with them.
