As a Secondary Teacher you get to explore your subject every single day. And there’s always something more to learn about it from a young adult’s perspective! The best Secondary Teachers inspire young adults to love their subjects and to continue to love learning once they leave school. They also provide excellent pastoral care to their students, helping them to build the personal and social skills which will determine how successful and happy they are in later life. The challenge is to make sure every single student has the same opportunities, regardless of their backgrounds. Can you take on that challenge?
We are proud of our Secondary Initial Teacher Education which ensures trainees have the right mix of individual support and joint training sessions to excel in classroom. 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.
We know many prospective trainee teachers worry about getting their subject knowledge up to scratch. Helping you to do that is of paramount importance to us. Your dedicated subject mentor will support this, and if you are studying to teach the following subjects you may qualify for a free Subject Knowledge Enhancement course.
Our school-led training is a unique opportunity to engage in immersive training. Trainees are welcomed into the staff room, become part of the team 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 NQT year, meaning you will find the transition from Trainee and NQT less challenging.
