About the training provider

St Mark’s teaching school partnership is an exciting place to work and learn. It provides a unique school based learning opportunity in partnership with the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex. This is an innovative partnership of six schools led by the outstanding St Marks Church of England Primary. The vision for our partnership is “To open a door to teaching and learning that will inspire the teachers of the future to be able to work collaboratively and creatively, and to have a passion to enable the pupils in their care to develop holistically to their full potential.”

We recognise how much enthusiasm and energy trainees bring to our schools. They give us an opportunity to share good practice and to learn with them. Our staff are trained in, and enjoy, coaching and developing, the next generation of teachers so that they can inspire our children.

Our partnership of schools is led by St Marks Teaching School and comprises of four village primaries and a large urban primary with an ASD facility.

The children across our schools are at the heart of everything we do. They are happy, well- motivated and they love learning. Both staff and children believe everyone matters, everyone helps to enable everyone to succeed.

Our staff are our most valuable resource, and have a proven track record in training and professional development. Our teachers are excellent practitioners who are eager to share their knowledge and skills and work alongside the next generation of teachers

About the accredited body

The University also provides a comprehensive programme of professional studies which complements the sessions offered across our partnership.

The University works in partnership with the school to organise a final assessment and make a recommendation for QTS. A university tutor will support you whilst on the programme and you will be eligible to access a range of support services provided by the University.

Candidates on a School Direct Training place will be automatically registered on the PGCE which offers up to 90 Master credits.
