Our programmes are school-centred initial teacher training programmes and all lead to Qualified Teacher Status with the option of an online PGCE alongside. Our programmes are designed to maximise time spent on the job, in contrasting schools, to fully prepare candidates for life as a teacher in the area. As the one-stop shop for teacher training on the Fylde Coast, we offer the following programmes:
QTS 3-7 with Early Years specialism;
QTS 5-11 with Special Educational Needs specialism;
Firstly, our programmes are completely personalised to each candidate; no two people have the same experience because we know our trainees come from all walks of life. We tailor the year to maximise your skills and ensure you have the best possible start to your teaching career.
Secondly, because our trainees don’t have to attend University lectures, we have time to give them bespoke enhancement programmes running alongside the mainstream placements. Our trainees teach in a wide range of settings including: primary schools, pupil referral units, Special Educational Needs, private schools and Sixth Forms. Our professional studies programmes are evidence-informed and facilitated by experts in our region.
Finally, our programmes are competitively priced because we know graduates are already carrying huge university debts. We charge £7500 for the year for QTS-only and we give our secondary trainees a free qualification alongside so they all leave as qualified teachers of PSHE Association [Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education].
