About the training provider

St George’s is the lead school in the Cardinal Hume Academies Trust which comprises of four Catholic secondaries (St George’s, Salvatorian College, Bishop Douglass and St Thomas More) and one Catholic primary (St Edward’s). Your application will come through St George’s but you can train at any of the schools in the trust.

All our schools offer a huge amount of support and guidance to their trainees. They are a wonderful place to train because of the intensive support you receive from your mentor and because the focus on good behaviour and support from the senior management mean that you are able to hone teaching skills in a calm and ordered environment.

There is also a catered weekly CPD programme for trainees and plenty of opportunities for helping out on trips and after school clubs.

International students

We cannot sponsor visas. You’ll need to get the right visa or status to study in the UK.

You do not need a visa if you already have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, or if you’re an Irish citizen.

Candidates with qualifications from non-UK institutions may need to provide evidence of comparability by applying for a UK ENIC statement.

Training with disabilities and other needs

We are sensitive to all potential disabilities and have trained students with varying conditions in the past. Please make sure you highlight your specific needs in interview so we can be sure to support you as best we can.
