CESET brings together a wide range of partners across the south east, who have never previously collaborated on this scope and scale. It is collaboration of six initial teacher training providers and 30 lead schools for School Direct. 

Members of CESET are committed to work together to promote teaching as an attractive profession in the South East of England; improving the recruitment and retention of teachers in schools in the region, and ensuring that, in particular, pupils and schools disadvantaged by social deprivation benefit from their collaboration.
