About the training provider
The Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation is a family of five primary schools and four secondary schools, all of which are located in the heart of their communities across the London boroughs of Southwark, Lewisham and Bexley.
We have been educating young people in South London since 1876 and have over 15 years’ experience of initial teacher training. Embedded in a rich culture of both tradition and innovation, we draw on our long history of educational excellence while embracing new, forward-thinking ideas.
Our vision for education is built on aspiration and achievement, which is why we provide our staff with the highest levels of support. We have a unique and engaging professional development offer that provides opportunities for collaboration and access to networks for every teacher, no matter their career stage. Each member of our community, staff and students alike, also benefit from the Haberdashers’ Advantage – a unique set of benefits and opportunities that come from our sponsorship by the Haberdashers Company.
Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation is an inclusive employer that strongly values diversity. We welcome applications from members of black and minority ethnic communities, as we are keen to ensure that the teaching workforce is more representative of London’s diverse population.
This will determine your suitability to train to teach and assess your literacy and numeracy skills and subject knowledge.
The assessment process will include a presentation, panel interview, group task and a short teaching episode.
Training with disabilities and other needs
We want to make sure that our training programme is open to everybody. If you have a disability, we will make adjustments wherever reasonably possible in order to enable you to perform to the best of your ability throughout our recruitment process.
If you would like us to do so at the interview stage, please provide details on your application form. This will in no way affect your application.
