The course combines an intensive programme of initial teacher training with real experience and responsibility. The aim is to develop your competence, confidence and skills in the classroom and with students in secondary school. The course will give you teaching experience across at least two key stages of the 11-18 age range.
You will be expected to maintain an extensive professional portfolio showing achievement in relation to the Teachers’ Standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
On the salaried route you will be employed by your host school for the duration of the course, and be given classroom responsibilities right from the start.
On the non-salaried route you will slowly be introduced to classroom responsibilities and teach up to 60% of a teacher's timetable.
After the year, if you successfully complete your assignments, observations and portfolio, you will gain Qualified Teacher Status.

Fortnightly shiur (talk) for trainees who specialise in Jewish Studies
