About Us

East Lancashire Inclusion Partnership (ELIP) is a teaching school alliance of educational institutions, from across the Early Years, Specialist, Primary, Secondary and Further Education phases of education, led by Tor View Specialist Learning Community, a National Teaching School.
ELIP is governed by a strategic board with representatives from each of our strategic partner schools. There are two operational groups whose role it is to implement the ‘Big 6’. All schools are welcome to join the operational groups:
School Improvement and Development – Continuing Professional Development, Research and Development, Leadership and Succession Planning and SLEs and SPEs.
School Direct – Responsible for all aspects of Initial Teacher Education
We communicate funding opportunities funded by the Teaching School Council through the operational groups and welcome innovation and creative input from all partners.
Further information on each of our Strategic Partners can be found on their respective websites. Our vision is clear, to improve outcomes for pupils by raising standards of teaching and learning through high-quality training and development of the next generation of teachers.

Course Details

General Primary with QTS and SEND/Inclusion – This route is particularly appropriate for trainees with an ambition to work in the special school sector with learners with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Students will be based within primary or secondary age phases (dependent on the cognitive ability of the pupil cohort). A contrasting placement in a mainstream primary school ensures that on gaining recommendation for QTS, students can opt to undertake their induction year as an NQT in either the mainstream primary or special school sector.

General Primary with QTS – This route is appropriate for trainees with an ambition to work in a mainstream primary school. Students will undertake contrasting key stage placements. Students will be able to further enhance their specialism with access to specialist courses led by experienced and qualified practitioners.
