About the training provider

Uplands Primary School is the lead school for Forest Learning Alliance, working with Primary and Special Schools within our local area to provide School Direct fee funded and salaried placements across Bracknell Forest, Wokingham and beyond. We work in partnership with the University of Reading who have an exceptional reputation in teacher training. As an Alliance we provide high quality provision to ensure a well-rounded training programme, with a clear emphasis on mentorship throughout.

Who are we looking for?

For both salaried and training places we are looking for inspirational people who have a proven track record of good communication skills, the ability to use their initiative and ability to work under pressure in a demanding environment.

School Direct (salaried) is aimed at graduate career changers who have three or more years’ work experience. This year successful applicants have proven at the point of application and also at interview, that they have the necessary skills and understanding of the role of the teacher to be able to train as teachers whilst working in a school environment.

School Direct (fee paying) route is also a school based route into initial teacher training but applicants often do not have as much experience working in schools, leading classes and taking responsibility for teaching on a regular basis.

About the accredited body

We work in partnership with The University of Reading who provide a stringent complementary academic training programme to our students. For more details follow:
