SECONDARYWe will have vacancies for a 2020 start in: Art, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Computing, D&T, Drama, English, Geography, History, Maths, Music, Physics, PE, RE and MFL. (Please note that we do not offer German.)
The programme takes place over an academic year, starting with induction in August and ending with our qualification celebration in the summer. Every Monday, your core training takes place at the Deepings School (PE6 8NF) and then you spend the remaining four days in your host training school, working in your department and with classes. You gradually assume responsibility for your teaching over the course of the year but the pace of this is tailored for trainees from all backgrounds. Our secondary school partners can be found on the ‘Partners’ menu and these (and more) are the schools which may be available to host your training.
We offer a
number of different courses, all of which lead to Qualified Teacher Status.
The School Direct Training Programme
(Salaried) - Salaries
start from £17, 208
Provider-led (SCITT) Training Places (Fee Paying) - Fee to train: £8250
The Assessment Only Route (AOR) - Assessment Cost: £2500
Award for QTS in the age range 11-19 (secondary)
This is not a training programme but a route to assessment for applicants currently working as teachers in schools but who do not have QTS. Candidates must be currently working in a school, and have a minimum of two years’ full time teaching experience across at least two schools. Applicants must have the support of the headteacher to evidence their suitability to teach as well as their ability to evidence all the standards for QTS without the need for any further training. All other national teaching criteria (GCSEs, degree, skills tests etc) must be fulfilled.
FUNDINGOther than for AOR, (as it is not a training programme) there is lots of financial support available to help fund school-led training. Depending on your degree class and the subject you want to teach, you could be eligible for a generous tax-fee bursary or scholarship. If not, you’ll still have access to standard loans and grants to cover your training. See the information below but please go online to ensure you are accessing the most up to date data.
