We train and support Armed Forces Personnel, Veterans and Spouses or those who wish to change their career.
Our new part-time programme combines teacher training and practical teaching placement. After completing the induction element, you will be able to start your practical teaching placement within the classroom, gaining new skills and experience to support your teacher training.
The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (QCF) is suitable for teachers working in academies, secondary schools and further education colleges. It prepares trainee teachers to teach in a wide range of contexts and requires observation and assessment of practice.
Through our partnership with the Society for Education and Training (SET) we are pleased to offer our trainee teachers a discounted rate when undertaking QTLS.
Martin Reid, the Society for Education and Training's Director, said: "We believe that trainee teachers at Essential Teaching UK will enjoy the ongoing support of their peer group as they go on to undertake QTLS with the Society for Education and Training. With many candidates already applying for QTLS immediately after they have qualified, we believe that continuity will prove an appealing prospect."
Our programme is your chance to use your creativity, personality and passion every single day, in an environment that’s challenging and rewarding in equal measure.
We don't just enrol people who are fresh out of university. Many people take on our programme to start a new career or develop the skills they need to jump-start their teaching journey. We do not require any teaching experience but we will be looking for you to demonstrate examples of our values and competencies, which will be assessed at application and interview stage.
If you are successful at application and the interview stage, you will be made a conditional offer for the DET with QTLS Programme. The curriculum area you teach will be based on the needs of the School, Academy or College and your eligibility.
An employment-based route into teaching for those suitably qualified with three or more years' career experience. The trainee is employed as an unqualified teacher by one of our partner schools or academies. The school pays for the trainee’s salary and teacher training.
This route is where trainees pay the tuition fee and we will arrange for a Teacher Training Placement where required with one of our partner schools or academies. For those eligible ELCAS Funding is available.
