School placements

As a partnership of schools, we work together to recruit and train excellent teachers, who are inspired and equipped to continue to develop their teaching and leadership skills throughout their careers. We work with outstanding schools to develop a school led programme to meet the requirements of the Teacher’s Standards. These schools are usually within our Partnership and our Alliance.

You will have a main placement school and then in the Spring Term (6 weeks) complete a contrast placement in another school, in a different key stage. You will also get opportunities to experience a specialist provision and a Secondary School to look at how pupils progress from KS2 to KS3.

We will select the schools for you based on your experience, interview and commuting distance. Many of our schools have worked with us previously and we have excellent partnerships with them. You may come with a school that may be interested in recruiting you and this will be asked at interview. The commute is usually between 30 minutes and an hour, sometimes shorter.

About the training provider

Davies Lane Primary School has successfully trained trainees. Our aim throughout the course is to ensure that your training needs are met to ensure the best standards of teaching and learning are promoted. You will be training with outstanding practitioners in outstanding schools.

Interview process

All applicants who submit an application that meets Arbor Academy Trust requirements, as set out in the application scrutiny process, will be invited to interview day 1. On receipt, applications are viewed within a week. You will be interviewed by a panel of senior leaders and all details of the interview will be sent to you in advance.

Candidates are encouraged to advise us of any Special Needs prior to the Interview days.

If you are successful at day 1, you will be asked to go to another informal interview at a school that would like to sponsor a trainee teacher. You will have to be successful at both stages in order to get onto the course.

International candidates

You’ll need the right to study in the UK. You already have this if, for example, you:

  • are an Irish citizen
  • have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme (you may still be able to apply)
  • have indefinite leave to remain in the UK

If you do not already have the right to study in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa. The main visa for fee-paying courses (those that you have to pay for) is the Student visa.

To apply for a Student visa, you’ll need to be sponsored by your training provider.

Sponsorship is not available for this course.

If you need a visa, filter your course search to find courses with visa sponsorship.

Alternatively, check if you’re eligible for a different type of visa, such as a Graduate or Family visa, that allows you to train to be a teacher without being sponsored.
