Our Teacher Training programme starts from September, and continues through to the following June. This ensures that our trainees have enough time to maximise their placements and get the most out of the year with us.
Trainees spend four days a week in school, observing, planning lessons and teaching. Fridays are spent in a teaching and learning conference day, which will usually take place at a school in the Trust.
You will have 2 placements in two contrasting schools. In addition, there will be other opportunities which will include:
- A primary school (for Secondary school trainees)
- A secondary school (for Primary school trainees)
- A SEND school
- Post-16 Teaching
- A faith school
- A school with high levels of EAL (English as an additional language)
As your progress through the programme, your timetable and teaching load will be tailored to your needs and determined by your confidence and competence on the programme.
For our trainees, we have found that spending most of your training in a school environment is the best grounding for a career in teaching.
