Our ‘Train Where You Live’ concept is aimed at bringing teacher training to you, wherever you live in our region.

Our partnerships with providers across the region mean that wherever you train, you’ll be part of the same Red Kite programme and receive the same high-class teacher training. We’re the only provider working with the University of Leeds, and from September 2021 your learning experience with them will be blended to allow you to work remotely wherever you live.

With our wide range of courses, which now includes Part-Time options, there’s something for everyone regardless of where you live.

By being involved with Red Kite, you’ll have access to every school in our partnership. Check out the map below to see where you could train to teach with Red Kite and our partners.

“ As I do not drive, I was worried about my commute to placement schools.

This was taken into account as early as the interview stage, and I worked at two fantastic schools that were just 20 minutes away.”

Luise Horner, Red Kite Trainee 2019/20

Our Partners

Below is a list of our providers – whichever one you choose, you’ll be part of the same Red Kite course.
