About the course

Our programme is a primary based programme and runs from September - July during term time. Trainees are in school from Monday to Thursday and then on Friday they have a centre based training session. Trainees are assessed 3 times throughout the year against very clear criteria. We offer a PGCE which is accredited through the University of Winchester. There are currently 4 assignments linked to this route spread across the year. All of our trainees from previous years have secured jobs before leaving the training.

School placements

Trainees are placed in 2 different schools. They start in their preferred age group and then in the 2nd term move to the alternate key stage. In the 3 rd term they return to their first placement. Our programme is 5-11, so from year 1- year 6. We have 12 partnership schools that are infant, junior or primary which are situated in Southampton, Winchester and Diben Purlieu in Hampshire.

About the training provider

We are committed to support you as embark on your training so that you become exceptional teachers who are fully prepared to teach across a range of contexts. We are passionate about building the future life chances of the young people in our trust and invite you to join us on that journey. We will equip you well as you take your first steps into a successful career in teaching. We have a strong track record of recruitment into our trust schools and a close network of school leaders who support the programme.

Our central training, led by experts in their fields from our in house education team and external consultants, is designed to help you engage with the latest educational thinking and practice. All that you learn, you will experience and apply in practice alongside your school based mentors. Our 60 master level PGCE provision further compliments your education studies. We can place you in schools across four local authorities, making us geographically diverse but united in ambition.

Our programme includes ‘Enriched Learning Experiences’ affording you the opportunity to spend time in a variety of settings, such as our hospital school, to widen your understanding of a range of educational provisions.

Interview process

Interviews are held at different partnership schools and are attended by Senior Leaders from these schools.

It is a 4 part process that lasts roughly 1/2 day. There will be a range of activities that interviewees will need to undertake including a formal interview, working with children and a written activity.

Training with disabilities and other needs

We are an inclusive provider, embracing diversity and following through fully on our commitment to equalities.

We welcome applications from trainees with disabilities and other specific needs. Our profile of schools are accessible and we work closely with trainees to identify reasonable adjustments to both the programme and placements where these are needed.

Where trainees are in receipt of DSA, we meet with them early in the programme to review their needs, liaising with university providers, placements leaders, mentors and tutors to ensure the programme works for them and supports them effectively.

The well being of our trainees is hugely important. We have prioritised access to our central trust wellbeing packages. This includes access to 24 hour counselling services and packages such as Headspace. Our university provider also provides full access to their student wellbeing and counselling services. Each trainee is looked after by school based mentors and are assigned a link tutor. This support is overseen by a lead tutor who quality assures this support.
