About the course
At the Pan Enfield Alliance we have a history of training Biology colleagues very successfully - with all trainees having found employment immediately after training. Previous trainees have commented on the extent of support they received as well as the practical and pedagogical skills they learnt during their time with us.
Students apply to the Pan Enfield Alliance and the school of their choice for the main placement. Most of our previous trainees have lived locally, but due to our reputation, we have trained colleagues from across London. You will be teaching 11-18 year olds and will be within an Alliance of over a dozen schools, in 2 placements and with the opportunity to spend some time in additional schools. Your placements run for the whole training year, with 1 day per week at university.
You will be interviewed by a panel - including the Head of Department or Faculty and a member of the Senior Leadership Team. There will also be a test of literacy and a short lesson observation to see how you relate to young people.
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.
Minimum lower second degree or equivalent in the subject (or closely related) you wish to teach.
Level 3 (A Level or equivalent) in the subject you wish to teach).
Level 2 (GCSE or equivalent) “good” pass in Maths, English and Science (A*-C/9-4).
We are looking for confident, knowledgeable and enthusiastic people. Preferably, you will currently hold a role within a school which requires you to work directly with children.
We prefer candidates who can show evidence of their working with children and who possess the personal attributes which suggest real potential in the classroom: independence, flexibility and charisma.
The Department for Education requires the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly the Criminal Records Bureau) to vet the background of persons working in their schools. You will need to pass skills tests in English and Maths. This must be completed before you register on the programme.
