EoE Teacher training is a specialist primary training provider who works with a large number of schools in Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire to offer high quality Initial Teacher Training.
EoE Teacher Training’s courses lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS); you can also gain a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). You can choose to train within the 3-7 or 5-11 age range, and you will learn from a range of experienced, outstanding practitioners.
You’ll spend on average four days per week in your school placement, from within our local partnership of schools. In addition, you will join the rest of your cohort on average one day per week for training with EoE Teacher Training in Lincoln. You will start with your ‘host school’ in September, and remain with them until the end of the course in July, except for when you undertake a contrasting 6 week second school placement within our partnership. We can GUARANTEE that all your school placements will take place within your local area - wherever this is.
Our curriculum has six areas, across three phases of competency:
- Pedagogy and how children learn
- Behaviour management and relationships
- Adaptive teaching strategies
- Assessment of pupils
- Professional Responsibilities
- Subject knowledge and curriculum
You’ll receive regular formative feedback through lesson observations, weekly mentor meetings, visits from EoE staff, professional learning conversations and support from your class based mentor.
Your class based mentor will support you daily, and you will also undertake visits and support from your quality assurance tutor. In addition, EoE staff will provide pastoral, academic and professional support.
We will be able to award QTS at the end of the course, if trainees meet our curriculum statements and demonstrate the necessary competencies.
The PGCE is an academic qualification assessed through two 5,000 word assignments. This is awarded by The University of Hull who will visit our training venues in Lincoln to deliver sessions to you; you don’t need to travel to Hull.
