This Initial Teacher Training programme enables trainees to gain experience in teaching lower Secondary age and upper Primary age pupils.
It is designed to bring subject specialists into the Primary teaching workforce and also to enable those working in Secondary schools a good grounding in how to support those children who may be coming up into Secondary who are working below age expectations.
The tuition fee programme will include two placements with the first one from September to December in a Secondary school, teaching your specialist subject to Key Stage 3 pupils. This is then followed by a contrasting placement in a Primary school teaching general Primary to pupils in the year 3 to 6 age range.
For this programme, you would be eligible for the Secondary tax-free bursary rates for your specialist subject.
This programme leads to Qualified Teacher Status with a PGCE
