About Inspiring Future Teachers – GLF Teacher Training

Inspiring Future Teachers (IFT) is a national School Centred Provider of Initial Teacher Training (SCITT).  GLF Schools' Teacher Training is part of IFT and is an alliance of highly successful schools in Surrey and beyond.  We have a very strong history of providing exceptional Initial Teacher Training since 2013, with high employment rates within our partnership schools.

Training and recruiting teachers through either our Primary or Secondary programme, allows our partnership of schools to "grow their own" and aims to offer successful candidates a long-term career pathway that goes well beyond Initial Teacher Training.

Our trainees learn in a school environment, as a member of school staff, from day one.  This is supported and enhanced through a comprehensive and evidence-informed, centre-based training programme. Our train to teach programme is led by highly skilled teachers and professionals from the local area, who are passionate about education and providing the best possible life chances for the children in our schools.
