A career in Primary Teaching is incredibly rewarding; you get to work with children when they are at their most inquisitive and open minded. As well as having lots of fun, you have the honour and responsibility to set the young people in your care on a learning path which will determine their life chances later in life. To be the best, you will need to rise to that challenge.
We are proud of our Primary Initial Teacher Education which prepares our trainee teachers to rise to the challenge of ensuring every child has the best possible start in life, regardless of their circumstances and backgrounds.
Our careful blend of theory and practice means you’ll study how young people learn best and then try out relevant techniques and strategies in your classroom, gaining QTS and a PGCE as you do so. Your teaching practice will be supported by weekly sessions with your dedicated mentors who will offer you helpful feedback and you will also get support to develop your subject knowledge including maths, English and science.
School-led training is a unique opportunity to engage in immersive training. Trainees are welcomed into the staff room and their departments and are treated like a member of staff. With that comes an opportunity to experience many of the things that you would only be exposed to in your Early Careers Teacher years, meaning you will find the transition from trainee to Early Careers Teacher much easier.
