A federation of three schools is now beginning to train teachers in-house.
Following a successful pilot, the Leek Federation's Teacher Training Programme will be up and running at the start of the next academic year, in September.
Westwood College, Leek High School and Churnet View Middle School is collectively, as a hard federation of schools, now offering, in partnership with Staffordshire University, courses in a variety of subjects and a variety of phases.
Director of the Leek Federation's Sixth Form, Dan Owen, pictured above, said: "The courses are for those doing their teaching degrees and needing to carry out their teacher training.
"We offer a range of subjects from English to computer science, and from modern foreign languages to maths.
"Our strong Federation with schools that are geographically close means that we can offer a range of experiences exclusively in good quality schools, to prepare students superbly for the career of a teacher.
"We offer sixth form experience, an experience of a range of phases and profiles of student, in a supportive and inspirational environment.
"We can also offer Primary teacher training through the Leek Education Partnership."
The places can be applied for through the UCAS website.
