Our Graduate Teachers (students who are studying to gain their PGCE / QTS with us through our School Direct initial teacher training programme) changed placements at the beginning of Term 3. To qualify as a teacher, everybody has to teach in two different schools and in two different Key Stages, and in our programme we try to make both changes at the same time, at the beginning of Term 3.
They have all embraced the change, and are having a great time getting to know their new classes and new schools. In amongst this, they have also been taking time out for training and input from our range of specialists and experts. This includes a session on ‘Applying for your first post’, ‘EAL and diversity’, and continuing with their modules on English, Maths and Music.
We still have places available on our teacher training programmes starting in September 2020, and have a number of open days coming up where you can learn more about them and what we offer. You can check the dates and sign up for a place here. Alternatively, give us a call on 01225 759273 (option 2) – we’d love to chat!
