About the course

William Perkin School is one of four Twyford Trust schools, and School Direct trainees will be joining us at a time of considerable growth. William Perkin opened as a Free School in September 2013 with its first intake of Year 7 students, and now has six year groups (7, 8, 9, 10, 11 & 12); the post-holder will join William Perkin in its seventh year. The School had its first OFSTED inspection in June 2015 and was rated as outstanding , the highest grade attainable in an OFSTED inspection.

The Trust's ethos is strongly and distinctively Christian, with an emphasis on developing socially responsible individuals with a sense of their own capacity to do and be good. The Twyford Trust prides itself on embracing 'life lived to the full' - a Christian-based concept it has developed as the 10:10 ethic.

The School Direct Mathematics programme at William Perkin School begins in September 2019. Upon successful completion of the training programme in summer 2020, you will gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

All schools in ETSA are highly supportive and inspirational environments where you will develop the necessary skills and acquire a true appreciation of the practice essential for outstanding teaching and learning. You will learn your craft in a safe environment which allows you to experiment with teaching styles, strategies and ideas.

Your training will be delivered by expert teachers within the school. You will participate in weekly professional development sessions which will cover a wide range of topics and school policies which will be of use to you in your subject area and in the school as a whole. You will also attend Alliance-wide Golden Day training events along with fellow ETSA trainees. Your school-led training will be complemented by attendance at the St Mary's.

You will be assigned an experienced mentor from within your subject area at William Perkin School who will support you in your development over the course of what will be a challenging and rewarding year. All mentors are excellent teachers who are well-trained in mentoring, coaching, lesson observations and feedback skills. You will also work closely with a member of the Senior Leadership team who will oversee a great deal of your training and will provide an invaluable perspective on your role as a teacher and the wider issues of education leadership.

Interview process

Shortlisted applicants should expect to first attend an interview at St Mary's University.

If successful, applicants will then be invited to an interview at school and to take part in some or all of the following activities: a presentation; a written task; small group teaching; curriculum discussion and an interview. You will be told in advance if you are required to prepare a presentation or to teach.

It is a rigorous and thorough process designed to ensure successful applicants are well placed to succeed.

Please note that we recruit on a rolling basis and usually offer only one position per subject area (unless otherwise stated). We suggest that you apply early as popular subjects are filled quickly.

How school placements work

As well as your main training placement at William Perkin School, you will complete a six-week placement in a contrasting context within ETSA; this will afford you the opportunity to experience working with different students, within different structures and with a wider range of colleagues.

Salary

ETSA Salaried School Direct trainees will be paid on the Unqualified Teacher Pay Scale (Band A, Inner London) area.

All ETSA schools offering Salaried places in Maths, Physics and Computing will pay trainees at least £25,000 as a result of additional funding being offered by the government.

Salaries for other subjects will vary depending on the subject and salary.

Financial support

Financial support isn’t available for this course because it comes with a salary.

If you choose a course without a salary, you may be eligible for financial support while you study, including bursaries, scholarships and loans.
