SECONDARYWe will have vacancies for a 2019 start in: Art, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Computing, D&T, Drama, English, French, Geography, History, Maths, Music, Physics, PE, RE and Spanish.
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.

FUNDINGThere 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. Please note that the info below is for 2018-19 - new information to follow.
