Employment

The destinations of 600 trainees over the past 4 years

Excellent employment opportunities are offered following your successful completion of the programme, including in the schools you have trained in.

In a typical year over 75% of our trainees become colleagues within our training schools.

However, through a series of employment workshops which include presentations from headteachers and recruitment agencies we ensure all of our trainees are supported in finding careers upon graduation.

We are particularly proud of those colleagues who have trained with us who are already holding leaderships roles in their schools.

Quality of our Programme

Our programme is very carefully constructed so that you will see and understand every aspect of a child's life from the age of 11 to the age of 19.

You will spend 80% of your time with us in the classroom observing, team-teaching and teaching the highest quality of lessons.

We may be school centred but this does not mean that we do not take your training and academic development extraordinarily seriously.

Your training will involve -

  • A fortnightly General Education Session (GES) with the entire cohort in which you will receive training from an excellent practising teacher and leader.
    These sessions will cover all aspects of the philosophy and practice you will need as a teacher such as behaviour management, lesson planning, assessment, personal and social development and many, many more.
  • Regular day sessions with subject experts across all partner schools learning from them the knowledge and craft you will need to teach your subject and/or age range.
    They have been selected as the elite teachers of our organisation so you will learn your pedagogy from the best.
  • And much more...!
