QTS Accredited Provider & Lead School
Regional TSA - Birmingham
Warwickshire Early Years Hub
The intention of the CEYP is to work as a network of Nursery Schools and Primary Schools with Nursery classes across various West Midlands authorities, with one Partner School from each region acting as the Regional Hub for the partnership.
Schools within the CEYP work locally, nationally, and internationally in both Initial Teacher Training and School Improvement.
Teaching staff in all of our Partner Schools are Mentor trained and provide this support to students on placement.
All of our partner schools have been providing student placements for over 10 years, have extensive experience supporting trainee teachers, and are rated either 'Good' or 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.
