About the course
This course is run at Polegate School and trains candidates in KS1 & 2.
Candidates will be on a 50% timetable with initially 3 days in school and 2 days at Brighton University and from mid-November they will be full time in school.
Candidates will be regularly watched by their mentor to ensure that they are succeeding on the course.
