Why Train With Us
For us, it’s about belonging.
The Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation is a family of five primary schools and four secondary schools, all of which are located in the heart of their communities across the London boroughs of Southwark, Lewisham and Bexley.
We have been educating young people in South London since 1876 and have over 15 years’ experience of initial teacher training. Embedded in a rich culture of both tradition and innovation, we draw on our long history of educational excellence while embracing new, forward-thinking ideas to achieve our shared objective: ensuring that every child in our care receives the best possible education in order to make the best start in life.
Joining the Haberdashers’ community is an opportunity to belong to something more and to make a difference to the lives of the thousands of children and young people enrolled in our schools. Our vision for education is built on aspiration and achievement, which is why we provide our staff with the highest levels of support. We have a unique and engaging professional development offer that provides opportunities for collaboration and access to networks for every teacher, no matter their career stage. Each member of our community, staff and students alike, also benefit from the Haberdashers’ Advantage – a unique set of benefits and opportunities that come from our sponsorship by the Haberdashers Company.
Whatever Initial Teacher Training route you pursue with us, as a trainee within the Federation, you will be provided with unparalleled support to enable you to perform to the best of your ability for our learners, all the while enjoying being part of an established name that nurtures your talent and ambition.
