About the North Charnwood Learning Partnership

  • NCLP is a well-established partnership of secondary schools with a 100% pass rate for students on our School Direct PGCE programme.
  • NCLP is located in the Loughborough and the wider North Charnwood locality, a compact geographical area well served by public transport.
  • We have a strong track record of training and developing excellent teachers across KS 3-5 in diverse teaching practice placements.   
  • High quality, experienced mentors within all of our placement schools.
  • Our students commend our weekly professional development programme (PDP), held within the NCLP schools, run by outstanding practitioners throughout your teaching practice.
  • Our ITT students benefit from a strong working relationship between NCLP schools and both the University of Leicester and Loughborough University.
  • QTS with PGCE and 60 Masters credits from the University of Leicester or 90 Masters credits from Loughborough University (Physical Education only).
  • The application and interview techniques seminar and ‘mock’ interview ensure our students are well prepared when applying for teaching posts.
  • 100% of our students in 2014/15 and 2015/16 who applied for a teaching post were successful.
