About the course

The programme consists of school-centred training opportunities from the beginning of September through to the end of June.

Four days per week will be spent in school observing, planning and teaching. This will lead to solo teaching. One day per week will be spent in a teaching and learning conference day, which will usually be held at one of the Trinity partners’ centres.

The majority of the conferences will focus on planning for learning and teaching, and providing you with the knowledge, skills and understanding required for you to be a highly effective teacher.

Other conferences will have an academic focus where you will work with staff from Liverpool John Moores University to develop Masters Level 7 work.

As you progress through the programme, your timetable and teaching load will be bespoke to your needs, determined by your confidence and competence on the programme. There is an expectation that your teaching allocation will increase gradually across the course.
