About the training provider

Court Moor School is one of the highest performing schools in Hampshire: in 2017 we had the highest ‘Basics 9-5’ results (students achieving at least a Grade 5 in both maths and English) in the county and we are consistently near the very top of the league tables. The school is consistently rated ‘good’ by Ofsted and our 2022 Ofsted report highlights the positive atmosphere among staff. Attendance is excellent and behaviour issues are rare; in fact, visitors frequently comment favourably on the conduct of our students.

Our new partnership offers the chance to train within a network of local schools who work closely together and are all committed to the development of new staff. We have an excellent track record of ITT, and many current members of staff trained at the school. Our teaching mentors have all undertaken the relevant training with the University of Reading (and/or similar institutions), and the feedback we receive from trainees reflects the supportive and collaborative environment.

About the accredited body

One of the ‘Top 10’ ITT providers in the country. The University of Reading have a superb track record in ITT and are always supportive of trainees and partnerships schools, working collaboratively to ensure trainees get the best possible experience. We choose to only work with University of Reading for ITT, because their levels of communication and support are first class.

International candidates

You’ll need the right to work 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 work in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa. The main visa for salaried courses is the Skilled Worker visa.

To apply for a Skilled Worker visa you need to be sponsored by your employer.

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.

International qualifications

If your qualifications come from a non-UK institution, we may want to see a ‘statement of comparability’ from UK ENIC. This will show us how they compare to UK qualifications.

You can call Get Into Teaching on 0800 389 2500 for:

  • guidance on the UK equivalents of your qualifications
  • a free statement of comparability once you’ve submitted your application (if we ask you for this)

Training with disabilities and other needs

Trainees with disabilities and other needs are offered our full support. The school/partnership has made staff wellbeing a priority: this year, for example, we have focused on ‘mindfulness’ as a pathway to good mental health, and we have appointed a wellbeing co-ordinator to ensure we are doing everything we can to support staff.
