About the course

Training will take place in the employing school four days per week and with the training provider on Fridays.
Candidates will be invited to interview in June 2019. As part of the interview they will be expected to undertake a short teaching activity.
How school placements work
The majority of the training programme is in the employing school. The trainee will undertake a placement in an another school for a period of 4-6 weeks, usually in the spring term.
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.
You would need a minimum of a 2.2 Honours Degree (or overseas equivalent confirmed by NARIC UK). Also, you would need to have GCSE qualifications (grade C/4 or better) in Mathematics, English and Science, or a confirmed equivalent qualification.
We are looking for creative, proactive, positive applicants who share our commitment that students in our local schools should have the best possible teachers, and a desire and determination to make this commitment a reality.
The candidate must have found themselves an employing school before applying.

Training with disabilities and other needs
Teachers with disabilities make an important contribution to schools both in the classroom and in shaping the wider culture and ethos of the schools they work in. Schools value diversity and the unique contribution that all their staff and trainees bring. If you have a disability, you shouldn’t be dissuaded from applying. If you are invited to attend an interview, and have any special requirements, please let us know beforehand so that we may make reasonable adjustments for you. We want all interview candidates to have an equitable and enjoyable experience, regardless of any disability. Full details are on the Department for Education website.
All trainees are required to complete a medical check when they receive the offer of a training place. This will identify if there are adjustments required. As a training provider, CTSN will make such adjustments in our training. We encourage all trainees to disclose all relevant information with their placement schools as this will enable them to make suitable provision. Schools have experience of making provisions for their own students and are therefore well placed to offer similar adjustments for trainee teachers. If you have an offer, but have not yet disclosed a disability or other need, you can disclose at any time.
