Ashmount & Encompass Alliance
Primary Teacher Training on the School Direct Programme

Who are we?
Loughborough based Ashmount & Encompass Alliance is a School Direct ITT partnership working with The University of Derby to train high quality primary teachers. Ashmount School is our lead school and is designated as a national teaching school. The partnership is built on the foundations established by Loughborough Encompass Partnership’s Graduate Teacher Programme which was established over a decade ago to contribute to the teaching workforce in Loughborough.  It has a strong track record in terms of DfE data in the employability of its trainees – its statistics are amongst the best in the sector. Many former trainees now work as mentors with our current trainees.  
Ashmount & Encompass Alliance is guided in its work by a strategic management committee comprising headteachers with extensive ITT experience. The original mission statement for  Loughborough Encompass Partnership  was ‘To train high quality primary phase teachers by recruiting the highest quality candidates available enabling them to achieve their full potential as newly trained teachers through training involving high quality partnership schools and a high quality central training  based programme all under the active management of a committed provider...’ The currency of that aspiration remains as the partnership seeks to move forward through the School Direct scheme.
