About the course

This course is delivered in partnership with Bromley Schools Collegiate, our accredited provider.

Our trainees are based at one of our partner schools throughout their placement, with the majority of the week spent on a blended training programme. Each Wednesday afternoon is spent training at Bromley Schools Collegiate for the SCITT delivered training.

The Training course runs from September to July.

Interview process

Successful applications will be invited for a half day assessment at one of our partner schools.

This assessment process will be jointly led by the Atlas Director as well as Senior Leaders from the partner school and assesses your suitability for teaching and National Curriculum knowledge for your chosen subject.

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 without powerpoint or any other electronic aid. You will then have a formal panel interview.

You will also be asked to complete a timed written task which will be used to assess your written English only, so please do not worry about the content.

You will have lots of opportunities during the day to ask questions and find out more about the course and the experience you can look forward to if you are selected.

How school placements work

Careful attention is given to the selection of your placements so that you will benefit from two contrasting placements that will develop your experience of teaching students in 4 different year groups in different settings.

Why train with us?

Our programme is characterised by a combined focus on skills, knowledge and the insights offered by educational research into the most effective pedagogical approaches and our experience of developing teachers and leaders for over 20 years. This is enhanced by unique experiences gained in the diverse school settings within our Alliance. Our trainees can spend time in a PRU, special and grammar school in addition to their two placements. From day one they are given the opportunity to make a difference to our students and the support and guidance to flourish into an effective teacher and future leader if that is their ambition.
