Course summary

The course is a one year full-time course, which runs from September through to July, leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). The course covers the age range 5 to 11 years although trainees also spend a short time in an EYFS class.

Trainees are assigned a trained school based trainer within each school that they are placed. This person is responsible for supporting and guiding the trainee’s professional development and ensuring that they have the opportunities that they need within the school.

A trainee’s progress is assessed through regular formal and informal monitoring of teaching and written work.

Training in school progresses from observing and working alongside an experienced teacher to taking full responsibility, firstly for groups, and later for the whole class during the academic year. The course will produce qualified teachers who are competent and reflective across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

School placements

We work with over 70 schools across the county. This usually enables us to place trainees within a 30 minute drive from home.

Trainees on the 5-11 course complete their Autumn term placement in a Key Stage 1 class and their Spring term placement in a Key Stage 2 class in a different school. This fulfills the ITT requirements regarding two settings and two key stages. During the summer term, Route 2 trainees are placed in a different key stage 2 class. This may be in their Autumn or Spring term schools, or may be in a new setting, depending on placements available. All placements are usually within a 30 minute drive from home.

During Spring trainees can apply to take part in an enhanced placement. These take place in special schools, area resource bases, pupil referral units and nursery schools. Enhanced placements aim to extend a trainee’s experience in a particular area of interest or need. Applications are carefully considered by the Course Leaders.

Interview process

During interview day candidates must be able to demonstrate evidence of their potential to become an effective primary teacher and have an awareness of current issues in education.

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.

Training with disabilities and other needs

The Roseland Trust (TRT) is founded on the principles of equality and inclusion. Our leadership teams, all our staff, including professional tutors and school-based mentors strive to ensure the best possible outcomes for all student teachers. Prior to the start of the course all student teachers undertake a health and physical capacity to teach check. The Roseland Trust collaborates very closely with Cornwall SCITT to maintain the equality and inclusion throughout the entire course of the training.

For those with additional learning needs, every student teacher receives bespoke support from a dedicated academic tutor who can provide support with assignment writing. Students can also access additional support through Student Finance’s Disabled Learning Allowance Scheme.

We carefully select placement schools for those with physical needs to optimise any reasonable adjustments that may be required. Mentors and subject leaders can provide support to those with visual and hearing difficulties to develop impairment-friendly strategies within the classroom.

Our personalised approach to learning allows those with mental health needs to develop their practice with support from the central management team. We offer an empathic dialogue to provide an appropriate balance of support and challenge throughout the programme.
