The course is designed specifically for working with children between the ages of 3-7. This course will provide you with a level 6 Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Orange Moon Education works closely in partnership with Bradford Birth to 19 School Centered Initial Teacher Training (SCITT). During the placement in schools, you will gain the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to be an early careers teacher.
Important: Before applying for this course, you must ensure that you have the full support of a school or academy to facilitate your training and employment. This may be a school you’re already working at, or school that is going to be supporting you with your Teacher Apprenticeship.
A strength of the course is how theory and practice are related as a result of extensive time spent working with children in at least two placement schools. At least 120 days are school-based with support provided by experienced school mentors.
The course builds upon the subject knowledge and independent study skills that you will have already acquired as a graduate. Our school-based sessions develops and strengthens professional skills needed for teachers. Course tutors work closely with Headteachers, Mentors within the school to provide you with advice and support for the progressive development of your teaching expertise.
Teacher training will be delivered online by highly experienced, inspiring school teachers and leaders. The QTS Programme consist of lectures, seminars tutorials, micro-teaching environments and observations of teaching in school. This is very much a practical course, where you learn by doing.
Assessment is carried out across two placements against the Teaching Standards. The Programme offers you an opportunity to get experience of working in an alternative key stage/provision or special school.
Throughout the course, we place particular emphasis on providing equal opportunities for all students working in a diverse, multi-ethnic society. Depending on your previous experience you will be introduced to your new role in stages, beginning with observation and work with individual pupils, then with small groups, eventually leading to working with full classes.
