About the course

Trainees on the school direct salaried programme will be employed at one of our partner schools.

Trainees spend Monday to Thursday in their placement school with training taking place each Friday, usually at the Bromley Schools' Collegiate training suite. This is based at Chislehurst School for Girls, Beaverwood Road, Chislehurst BR7 6HE.

Our facilitators are experienced practitioners, many are senior leaders in our schools.

To meet the ITT criteria trainees must have experience of whole class teaching in 2 school settings. BSC will make these arrangements for you. This will take place in Spring term 1 (January and February ).

The Training course runs from September to July.

Interview process

Successful applications will be invited for interview. We try to give as much notice as possible, however this may be within a week of receiving your application.

The interview will be to assess your suitability for teaching and National Curriculum knowledge for Primary Education.

As part of the selection process, we require you to prepare a short 4 minute presentation to be delivered to a small panel of teachers. Which should be delivered orally without powerpoint or any other electronic aid. After which you will be have a formal interview with senior management / headteacher.

We ask you to bring along a book which you will be asked to read to a class – ensure the story is suitable for Primary age children – we will let you know as soon as possible the year group this will be.

You will also be asked to complete a timed literacy and numeracy task which will be assessed as part of the selection process. This will be a Year 6 sats paper.

How school placements work

Much consideration is given to placements. Each trainee must undertake 2 school placements to gain contrasting experience of teaching.
