About the course

This is an Apprenticeship course for candidates employed in a school as a teaching assistant or unqualified teacher prior to application. You must seek prior approval from you headteacher for this apprenticeship.

More time spent in the classroom With elements of the course delivered online there is no need for you to attend centre or university-led lectures. This means you can be based full time in your placement school to benefit from immersion in the school environment from the very start of your training.

Our trainees receive core teacher training via twilights and training days over the year which cover the nuts and bolts of teaching. Sessions focus on areas such as assessment, behaviour management, special educational needs, legal responsibilities, inspiring teaching and many more. These are all delivered by experts in their field, often practicing teachers, so you be confident that the content is both up to date and real life!

Our primary specific training covers skills you will need such as teaching and assessing phonics, core and ancillary subject development.

Following initial induction, you will spend your time on placement at your base school. Initially co-teaching with experienced practitioners, you will develop your skills and confidence to be taking about a 50% teaching load by Christmas. Prior to the Christmas break you will also have experience of teaching in your contrasting school.

After the winter break you will be back in your base school, but teaching in an alternate key stage. You are then back to you original placement until mid-June, working on your weekly targets with “your” classes. As you are in school full time, you will feel like a member of staff! Our final placement week is an enhancement week at one of our partners such as Adult Education or alternative provision.

You are assessed continually during the year by your mentor. They will guide you with weekly review and target setting meetings and specific in school training. Your primary lead tutor will also be on hand to develop your skills. You will expected to complete a PGCE which will enhance your teaching through the academic study of pedagogy. This assessment for this element is through three assignments submitted in the spring and summer terms.

School placements

Initial Teacher Training is a professional course and we therefore discuss placement requests with our applicants. We aim to balance the requirements of the school, and it ethos, with the personality of you as a trainee. We also try to minimize travel time, as it is not the best use of that scarce resource! As we are a large partnership, both with number and geographically, we can meet most requests.

You will be timetabled for classes across the 5-11 range, with additional secondary experience and early years experience days.

Interview process

At Yorkshire and Humber School Direct we believe that our children deserve the very best teachers and therefore our selection process is rigorous. It consists of four elements:

  • interview

-taught session/lesson planning task

-Grammar, arithmetic and writing task

These three elements combine to allow us to assess your potential to train to teach with Yorkshire and Humber Teacher Training. The interview allows us to get to know you as a person, your interests and rationale for applying. The taught session enables you to show you natural flair and how you interact with children. The grammar, arithmetic and writing test is used to identify areas for work before you start.

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

With elements of the course delivered online there is no need for you to attend centre or university-led lectures. This means you can be based full time in your placement school to benefit from immersion in the school environment from the very start of your training.

The TTEP suite of online resources takes you through the Professional Studies 1 and Subject Studies that you need at the start of your teacher training. Professional Studies 2 builds on this to extend and improve your teaching. This is supported by our pedagogy sessions that are aligned with the Teachers’ Standards to provide coherent examples of best practice.
