Welcome to Matthew Arnold Initial Teacher Training (MAITT)

Welcome to our School Direct Page

Welcome to Matthew Arnold Initial Teacher Training consortium (MAITT).

MAITT partners with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) to deliver the Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) with recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). MAITT’s overriding purpose is to develop Trainees so that they are able to develop into outstanding teachers who may ultimately work in Merseyside schools. A triangulated partnership between Matthew Arnold Primary School as the Lead School, our Partner Schools and LJMU are fundamental in achieving this aim.

We offer two routes into teaching:

  •   School Direct Training Programme (tuition) 
  •   School Direct Training Programme (salaried)
