Our initial teacher training programme is a great way to gain the qualifications and practical skills you need to become a teacher. It enables those who have finished a degree, or have been working in a career for many years, to combine teacher training with actually doing and learning on the job, leading to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

The teacher training training programme courses are based in one school for the majority of the training period with a second placement in a contrast school setting.

The course requires a commitment of 5 days a week for the length of the training programme, from September to July.

Trainees are expected to participate fully in the everyday life of the school in which they train and, therefore, occasional evening or extra curricular events will be obligatory.

Your professional responsibilities will include assessing, planning and teaching the primary curriculum.

You will be supported by highly experienced Teacher Educators and Tutors who will develop your skills through a range of coaching, feedback and observation.

Part of the course is theory based and there will be weekly formal training days held mainly in our training room at Alderton Junior School in Loughton.

Upon completion of the programme trainees are awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
