Teacher Training

Get into Teaching with GLF Schools’ Teacher Training

Why us?

We believe that the best place for trainee teachers to learn how to become excellent classroom practitioners is in schools. We offer Initial Teacher Training (ITT) through a variety of routes where trainees spend the majority of their time in a school environment, whilst receiving high quality support and training.  Learning in this way means that trainees feel part of the school community in which they train.  It allows schools to grow their own and offer successful candidates a long-term career pathway that goes well beyond Initial Teacher Training.

First rate training programme:  As an Accredited Provider of Initial Teacher Training and a national Teaching School, we provide all our trainees with a first rate professional training experience. All of our placement schools have significant experience in delivering Initial Teacher Training and are able to provide a consistently high quality setting for their trainees.

High quality mentoring:  Every trainee is allocated a mentor who is a subject specialist and will offer personalised support and guidance throughout the year. Weekly mentor meetings will focus on setting short and long-term targets and reviewing progress against the Teachers’ Standards.

Alliance-based training:  Trainees follow a bespoke and carefully devised Professional Studies Programme, delivered by our very best practitioners, one day per week. Training sessions take the form of seminars, lectures or workshops and focus on the development of both subject knowledge and pedagogical expertise. Training covers all eight Teachers’ Standards that trainees must meet in order to receive Qualified Teacher Status at the end of the course. Placement schools also offer a professional development programmes which trainees can access when in school.

Second school placements: Our partnership provides opportunities for trainees to experience a contrasting school setting in their second placement. Second school placements are organised by the SCITT and take into account individual needs and circumstances.

Induction: In order to help trainees prepare for the year ahead and ensure that salaried trainees are able to teach from the start of the academic year, trainees attend an Induction Programme in June. The induction period is remunerated for salaried trainees, unless otherwise specified by the employing school.

Networking and cross-school development opportunities: Working within a successful partnership of schools provides trainees with opportunities to share good practice and visit other schools, thus benefitting from the expertise of a wide range of highly skilled professionals.

Employment opportunities: 100% of trainees who gained QTS through us were subsequently successful in finding employment and most within our partnership.

GLF Schools’ Partnership

GLF Schools’ Teacher Training has established an alliance of highly successful primary and secondary schools across Surrey and beyond. We are fortunate to work with partner schools who offer a variety of diverse settings and who all share a commitment to Initial Teacher Training and staff development with outstanding learning and teaching at its core.

Routes into Teaching

SCITT Core (fee-funded)

This is a one year programme for high quality graduates (ideally 2:2 or above) who want to be part of a school team from day one. Upon successful completion of the course, trainees gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). There is also an option to study for a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and 60 Masters credits with Roehampton University.

Salaried School Direct

This is an employment-based course for career changers with at least two years work experience and a good Degree (ideally 2:2 or above). Trainees are employed as unqualified teachers and earn a salary while they train. Upon successful completion of the course, trainees gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and akin to the SCITT Core programme, can also undertake the PGCE qualification.

Please note that only QTS is required in order to apply for a teaching post in any maintained school in England. PGCE is an additional postgraduate qualification which a number of trainees might choose to study for, but which is not a requirement to find employment.

How to apply (primary and secondary)

All applications need to be made through the single admissions system for Initial Teacher Training, UCAS Teacher Training (UTT).  Recruitment for the academic year 2018/19 opens on 26 October 2017; the recruitment system with GLF Schools’ Teacher Training will remain open until August 2018.

There are two opportunities to apply:

  • Apply 1: up to three applications (any route), which will be considered at the same time
  • Apply 2: open to applicants who were not successful through Apply 1. Applicants make one choice at a time, which will be considered sequentially. Apply 1 will continue to run for new applicants

All decisions will be communicated within 40 working days of application.

Candidates whose initial application is successful will be invited for a whole day selection process in one of our partner schools.
