Success North Centre for Excellence in Teacher Training
Newcastle College has led "Success North" Centre for Excellence in Teacher Training (CETT) from 2007 to the present.
Success North is a collaborative partnership led by Newcastle College, and consists of a diverse range of training providers, groups and organisations from all settings in the post-compulsory sector. Success North works in partnership with providers to support teachers and trainers. The partners within Success North represent extensive coverage across the North of England, a wealth of expertise from a range of teaching and learning contexts. Success North represents OLASS, WBL, ACL, the voluntary sector, FE and HE partners who have already made influential contributions to the partnership and within their field.
Success North partners share the common aim of 'raising the standards of ITT and CPD provision through the development of strategies and materials to support trainee specialisms according to both subject and context.'

Peer-Provider Coaching Initiative PPCi
The Provider Peer Coaching Initiative (PPCI) was funded through the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) from 2010-2012. The initiative brought together partners from four settings (adult and community, further education colleges, work-based learning and voluntary settings) in the Learning and Skills sector to:
- diagnose organisational strengths, skills, knowledge and identify priorities for development
- request, commission, and/or provide coaching, training and development activities
- review, refine and re-purpose development resources for sharing with the sector.
