About the course

On the course you will be in school four days a week and follow a central training programme on Fridays, which augments your subject knowledge for teaching and your general professional development.

During the course you will receive strong support from The Cambridge Partnership (TCP) in the form of a Subject Specialist Tutor (secondary). Well-being of trainees is crucial and we have developed a strong mechanism to support trainees in this respect. A qualified counsellor is available at no cost to you.

Over the course you will produce an e-portfolio of evidence, monitored by TCP and your school(s). You will also have assignments to complete and your teaching will be observed regularly, with feedback to ensure strong classroom practice.

In November 2017, TCP was graded “good” by Ofsted and we shall be pleased if you view our final report on the OfSTED website.

About the training provider

Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust is a family of schools centred in Cambridgeshire. CMAT schools share a vision of education at the heart of local communities. As a Trust we truly value the success of every child and we place the sharing of excellent education practice at the core of this value.

With this aim, the Trust operates from hubs in Cambridge and Peterborough and its staff, pupils and families are spread across the entire area from rural village to inner city estate. Training the next generation of outstanding teachers is a vital part of our vision for the future. CMAT has a long history of delivering professional training at all levels of a teacher’s career. Our philosophy is to encourage creativity and evaluation to continually push the boundaries of learning.

International students

We cannot sponsor visas. You’ll need to get the right visa or status to study in the UK.

You do not need a visa if you already have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, or if you’re an Irish citizen.

Candidates with qualifications from non-UK institutions may need to provide evidence of comparability by applying for a UK ENIC statement.

Training with disabilities and other needs

CMAT and The Cambridge Partnership are committed to equal opportunities for all. We aim to ensure that no present or prospective trainee or tutor receives less favourable treatment than another on grounds of any condition or status not directly affecting study or work. As part of our equal opportunities policy, CMAT and the Cambridge Partnership are committed to improving the support of students with a disability.
