Monday 11th January 2016 – Train to Teach Career Information Evening (from 5pm to 7pm)

December 11th, 2015

Are you interested in training to become a secondary school teacher?

We are part of a growing number of schools leading the way to a more school-led system of teacher training. Our training leads to a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and QTS and is accredited by Oxford Brookes University. The course lasts a year and trainees spend the majority of their time in school learning from the best practitioners and getting to know how to support students in the best possible ways.

We currently have vacancies to start training from September 2016 and we are looking for people who have (or will have) a degree, have a passion for teaching and want to inspire young people to fulfil their potential. You may even be thinking of a change in career.

If you would like further information about the exciting teacher training opportunities available, we can be contacted by emailing itt@downlandalliance.org.uk. Further information is also available through our website.

We can provide you with support and guidance on your application and might be able to offer you school experience if you want a taster of what teaching could be like.

Bursaries of up to £30,000 may be available for trainees in certain subjects including Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Languages, Computing and Geography.

We will be holding a Train to Teach Information Evening on Monday 11th January at St. Bartholomew’s School, Newbury from 5 – 7pm.
There will be opportunities to speak with representatives from St Bartholomew’s School, The Downs School and Kennet School at this event.

A short presentation will take place at 6pm and there will be refreshments available.

For further information on what becoming a teacher might involve more generally, you can also visit www.education.gov.uk/get-into-teaching.

We look forward to hearing from you or meeting you at this event.
