Interesting in a career in teaching?
The West Berkshire Training Partnership provides school centred teacher training programmes for both Secondary and Primary trainees based at The Willows School near Newbury but in collaboration with schools across West Berkshire.
Not sure what’s involved…?
A school-led training course gives you the chance to learn ‘on the job’ in a school.
You work as part of the teaching team from day one – similar to student medics in hospitals – learning from experienced, practising colleagues and immediately putting your new skills into practice.
Want to find out more…?
The best way to start preparing for your future career is to find out what to expect.
Come along to our information event.
You’ll have the opportunity to talk to professionals and trainees about what’s involved.

Teaching has totally exceeded my expectations. When you become an adult you can forget what it’s like to be curious, but the kids remind you.
