Our ITT course starts in April 2023 and runs for the duration of the academic year. It is currently made up of 10 core-based training days, all delivered from a subject perspective, along with 6 additional subject-focused training days.
All our training currently takes place in central London and/or online.
By demonstrating that you have made good progress in all the curriculum areas, you will be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) at the end of the course.
You will be based in school and spend one day a week training with your cohort or online. Some of this will be self-directed study.
You will learn how to
- represent mathematical concepts so that students gain a deep and lasting understanding
- clear mathematical misconceptions,
- use questioning productively
- create appropriate levels of mathematical challenge.
- use theory and classroom practice to critically reflect on their beliefs of teaching and learning mathematics.
During subject training sessions, you will learn as part of a mathematical community. The process will enable you to become creative, confident, and inspiring mathematics teachers.
The curriculum is taught in eleven areas, meeting the requirements of the CCF, in addition to striving to go beyond them, and is all underpinned by the Teachers Standards.
These 11 areas are:
- Evaluative Lesson Planning
- Evidence Informed
- Substantive and Disciplinary Knowledge
- How pupils Learn
- Adaptive Practices and Expertise
- Behaviour for Learning, Climate
- Pupil Progress
- Teacher as Professional
- Inclusion and Diversity
Our intent is to produce teachers who are:
- Confident professionals who reflect habitually.
- Intellectually curious
- Innovative and adaptable
- Cognisant of the professional responsibilities of a teacher
- Aware of their part in creating an equality of experience for all pupils.
We use a comprehensive online learning management system to support independent study and formative assessment, in addition to a subject specialist tutor from e-Qualitas who visits for a half day each half term.
