LSJS Teacher Training Programmes rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted

The London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS) is thrilled and delighted to announce that Ofsted has graded its JTTP (Jewish Teacher Training Partnership) teacher training programme as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas.

This is a significant achievement for the only Ofsted accredited provider of initial teacher training in the Jewish Community. Over the last 5 years, LSJS has trained more than 200 teachers who are teaching across the country.

Praising the programme, Ofsted noted that “trainees thrive because of the high-quality training they receive”. The report recognised the “leaders’ pursuit of excellence” and that “leaders’ strong moral imperative to develop outstanding teachers and provide outstanding education for pupils is always clear.” There was specific praise for the personalised approach to training which has resulted in every teacher being rated as either Good or Outstanding.

The programme was praised for the way it trains teachers to be confident regarding equalities and safeguarding, with the report stating that “[trainees] receive the highest-quality, comprehensive training to ensure that they understand local, national and international risk to the safety and wellbeing of children. Training ensures that trainees and newly qualified teachers have a thorough knowledge of their responsibilities relating to equalities in education”.

LSJS offers four routes into teaching: SCITT, a one-year, full time primary teacher training course where trainees engage in a mix of lectures and school-based placements. Trainees also work towards a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE), a School Direct Primary Programme (run in partnership with Wolfson Hillel Primary School) and School Direct Secondary Programmes (run in partnership with Yavneh College) both of which offer ‘on the job training’ where candidates are employed by a school and released once a week to train and develop. At secondary level, candidates specialise in either Jewish studies, Hebrew, maths, science or another modern foreign language. LSJS also offer an ‘Assessment Only’ route for experienced but unqualified teachers.

LSJS are proud to work with our Lead Schools, Wolfson Hillel Primary School and Yavneh College.

Every day, more than 6000 pupils are taught by graduates of LSJS. This Ofsted report is proof that they are being educated by some of the best trained teachers in the country.
