The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is a key strategic partner of the WTA and has been a successful Initial Teacher Training provider of Secondary trainees since 2002. Trainees graduate with from the programme with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Post Graduate Certificate in Educational Practice (PG Cert).
