About the training provider
The St Marylebone School Teaching School Alliance was part of the first cohort of a hundred Teaching schools (http://teaching.stmarylebone.school/) and won this accolade largely due to a proven track record of training and outreach work. We are experienced in supporting successful trainees over a number of years on different training routes, for instance PGCE, Teach First, the Graduate Teacher Programme, School Direct Pilot and School Direct. Staff are eager to be involved in training and mentoring, many of them having themselves trained at St Marylebone School.
You will work with experienced teachers, first of all observing and team teaching, then teaching independently. This is complimented by a placement of about 6 weeks’ teaching in another school.
We have been successively rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted and SIAMS and are one of the best performing non-selective state schools nationally.
We are based in in the fantastic location of Marylebone High Street with all the attractions of central London nearby and the benefits of excellent transport links. Nearest tube stations: Baker Street, Regents’ Park (both a 2-minute walk away). You will be able to develop your career in a beautiful school with excellent facilities and positive links with parents and the vibrant local community
We work with a big group alliance of school in central London and further afield. Often the six week second school placements are shared between alliance schools to ensure that trainees have a good experience.
About the accredited body
Our school-based course is focused on your becoming the best possible teacher. You will work with experienced teachers, observing and team-teaching, then teaching independently. A placement of about 6 weeks in a contrasting school and other, short visits broaden your experience. Your study is based on the distance learning resources on the e-Qualitas website. Training sessions by experienced school staff are complemented by 10-12 training days run by e-Qualitas in a venue in central London. You also have a subject-specialist visiting tutor from eQ who visits the school each half term.
