Lisburne is an outstanding school and as a result of this we have a fantastic reputation with many of the local Universities, training colleges and further education establishments. We work very closely in partnership with MMU, Edge Hill Institute of Education, Sheffield and Derby Universities. We take a large number of trainee teachers on short enrichment courses or extended placements each year. We also work in close partnership with Cheadle/Marple and Stockport Colleges providing opportunities for students to work with pupils with additional needs where they know they will be supported along their learning journey. Tutors know that the students will receive a very high level of support here at Lisburne and are confident in our training programme because we take very seriously our role of mentoring and teaching.
In addition to students we also train and work with volunteers and young people wanting to gain work experience who also come into school to support our pupils within the extensive curriculum. All students and volunteers working at Lisburne are DBS checked and attend safeguarding training before starting their placement.
