The Achieve with TELA an established school based programme with a successful track record in Teacher Training working in partnership with Leicestershire Secondary SCITT.
You will learn from current practising teachers, see how every lesson has the potential to change a life and start to develop skills required to start doing so yourself, in your community.
Our course structure covers the areas you need to feel completely prepared to enter your NQT classroom. You will cover keys stages 2 to 5 and have an in-depth knowledge of how the practices develop through these age ranges. During your training year you will earn both your QTS (Qualified Teaching Status) and PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) and develop your knowledge of how academic theory underpins your classroom practice. The course is tailored to your needs, while on your two main teaching placements you will have an experienced and supportive subject mentor in school. This approach allows you the time required to embed the theory learned into your practice and explore how an effective teacher utilises cognitive science, pedagogical teaching strategies and experience to refine their teaching.
As a school-based provider, you are working with practising teachers modelling the latest effective teaching practices. You are supported, every step of the way. In school, you will be working with your Subject Mentor and ITT Coordinator, who ensure you have the exposure required to gain a broad understanding of your craft.
A key feature of our course is the Lead Subject Tutor (LST) role. These are experts within your subject, who work with you to build upon the introductory theory and deliver an advanced session, really focusing your training on what excellence means, within your subject. In addition to these features, you will also become a full member of the University of Leicester and have access to the full support of this establishment.
Our Core Learning Programme is delivered by current practising teachers who are experts in their field. The sessions will be delivered in a school from across the Teaching School Alliance that exemplifies this practice, meaning that you experience a range of environments, ultimately shaping you into a powerful, impactful and effective teacher.
