About Us

Our key aim is to: Work with other schools in a collaborative way to provide effective initial teacher training.

Knowing the individual is at the heart of our vision. Within The Duston Education Trust (TDET), academies, partners, children, staff and parents know they are part of a trust that cares, builds possibilities and potential, and nurtures what they are and what they can become.
