About the course
This course runs at Cavendish Primary School and trains candidates in KS1 & 2.
Candidates will be on a 50% timetable with initially 3 days in school and 2 days at Brighton University and from mid-November they will be full time in school.
Candidates will be regularly watched by their mentor to ensure that they are succeeding on the course.
There will be a second, contrasting placement at a school which is mutually agreed.
Candidates will be required to teach a small group of students for approximately 20 minutes, to judge their aptitude to teach. This will be followed by a formal interview.
How school placements work
The age range of students is 5 to 11 years
The candidate will have a total of two placements
The second placement is approx 6 weeks
This is a salaried position.
Financial support isn’t available for this course because it comes with a salary.
If you choose a course without a salary, you may be eligible for financial support while you study, including bursaries, scholarships and loans.
Candidates must have 5 or more GCSEs in Grades A* to C (or equivalent), including Mathematics, Science and English, and preferably a higher level honours degree.
We are looking for an enthusiastic person with a passion for working with young children. Candidates need to be well organised and willing to get fully involved in the life of the school as a whole. They need to be creative and innovative and interested in all aspects of teaching.
