About the course
(Salaried) programme is an employment based teacher training route. You will be employed by one particular school in the partnership, where your training will be delivered by expert teachers. You will be assigned a mentor from the staff of your school. From the beginning you will become a full member of staff and will attend staff meetings and training days. You will be in school from the first day of the school year so you can feel part of the team from day one. As well as being outstanding teachers our mentors are expert in coaching, classroom observation and feedback skills. Your school based training will be enhanced by attendance at the UCL Institute of Education where you will have full access to the University’s facilities.
How school placements work
The programme involves attending a programme of lectures and workshop spread over the autumn and spring terms. These sessions will engage with generic areas of teaching and learning as well as subject specific pedagogy, and will encourage you to become a reflective teacher. You will also be assigned a university tutor who will help to create your bespoke training programme as well as support your development as a teacher through tutorials, visits to school and guidance with assignments. In addition, you will follow a 6 week placement at a second school, where you will get experience of working with young people of all abilities
