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 early career teacher (ECT) classroom.
You will cover keys stages 3 to 5 and have an in-depth knowledge of how the practice develops through these age ranges.
During your training year you will earn both your Qualified Teaching Status (QTS) and Post Graduate Certificate in Education(PGCE) 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, 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 methods. You are supported, every step of the way.
In school, you will be working with your subject mentor and initial teacher training (ITT) coordinator, who ensure you have the exposure required to gain a broad understanding.
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 advanced sessions, really focusing your training on what excellence means, within your subject specialism. 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 at TELA, Leicestershire secondary SCITT or in a school from across the TELA Alliance that exemplifies this best practice, meaning that you experience a range of environments, ultimately shaping you into a powerful, impactful and effective teacher.
