New Northern teacher training hub launched

Leeds primary will be base for initiative in partnership with London School of Jewish Studies


A new programme has been launched to train teachers for Jewish schools in the North of England.

The Northern Jewish School Direct Primary Cluster will be based at the Brodestsky Primary in Leeds, in partnership with the London School of Jewish Studies.

The Primary School Direct course offers teachers the chance to learn on the job, teaching in a school.

Joanne Greenaway, LSJS chief executive, said, “It has long been a goal of LSJS to broaden our impact on Jewish schools across the country, through training more outstanding teachers, and it is wonderful to be able to work with the talented team at Brodetsky to bring this to fruition across the whole northern region”.

Rebecca Skolnick, English lead at Brodetsky, who is on the steering committee of the programme, said, “Having previously trained as a teacher at LSJS, I felt it was so important to create something just as fantastic here in the North.

“Brodetsky is a wonderful school which will lead this programme. We are especially excited about working with a strong group of Northern Jewish schools which will be hosting candidates in their area of the North.

The group also includes King David Primary School, Broughton Jewish Cassel Fox Primary School and Bury and Whitefield Jewish Primary School in Manchester, as well as King David Primary School in Liverpool and King David Primary School in Birmingham.

The course will suit graduates, teaching assistants already working in school and those looking for a career change.
