“the perfect opportunity to learn to teach by teaching”

We are a group of leading schools offering an exciting new way to learn to teach. We have a range of school contexts, including a number categorised as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, in which you can learn to teach Primary aged children. The programme has been developed in close association with the University of Cumbria and will be delivered by a combination of university lecturers and existing school practitioners. You will benefit from being school based from week one of your course and have the opportunity to learn the skills and knowledge to support you in your future career.

This year’s current cohort have benefited from quality input from leading educational consultants, an opportunity to put theory into practise immediately and support from experienced mentors.

Key Aspects of Our Programme:

  • free after school child care available
  • Pre-programme school experience offered
  • personalised approach to your training
  • high quality training – real teachers and lead consultant input.
  • placement certainty
