Accredited body
Educate Teacher Training

Bursary or student finance if you’re eligible

QTS (qualified teacher status) allows you to teach in state schools in England.

It may also allow you to teach in the EU, the EEA and Switzerland. You should check with the institution you’d like to teach in for confirmation. The status of QTS in these countries may change after the UK leaves the EU. Please check GOV.UK for updates.

To teach in the rest of the UK or internationally, you may wish to consider a ‘PGCE (or PGDE) with QTS’ qualification instead.

About the training provider

Northern Education Trust is offering the opportunity for you to train and gain QTS with PGCE through a practical, 'hands-on', school-led route. Within Northern Education Trust there are training opportunities available in a range of academies based in the North East. This route is for those who have the confidence and commitment to work alongside expert practitioners, in a strong partnership of schools, where they will develop their teaching skills on a daily basis to meet the professional Teachers' Standards over the course of the year. Successful applicants to the School Direct (QTS) programme have the extra opportunity to gain a PGCE, validated by Leeds Beckett University, and to accumulate 60 Masters' credits; all as part of framework which combines academic study with direct classroom application. Through this programme trainees enjoy the advantage of an 'on the job' experience, where the realities of life as a teacher are fully explored and understood. The majority of time is spent in one school, where trainees are supported by school based trainers, individual mentors and a personal link tutor. In addition to this, trainees attend school-led and centre-based training sessions, on specific subject knowledge and general classroom practice, which supplement the incomparable first-hand experience that is gained from being a full member of a school community for a year.

About the accredited body

Educate Teacher Training has a long-standing reputation for school-based programmes leading to QTS and, as the accredited provider for the Northern Education Trust, is accountable to the Department for Education. Educate Teacher Training co-ordinates the Ofsted-regulated Training and Assessment Framework in partnership with Dyke House College and the Northern Education Trust and also collaborates with Leeds Beckett University for the optional PGCE. Educate Teacher Training, Dyke House College and academies in the Northern Education Trust work closely together to design and deliver a fully integrated programme of training, assessment and support.

Training with disabilities and other needs

Educate Teacher Training has a designated tutor for trainees with disabilities and other needs. We take steps, before the programme begins, to fully assess the needs of trainees so that all aspects of the course are accessible to them and personal requirements accommodated.

Educate have, in the past, supported trainees with dyslexia, physical impairment and mental health conditions to successfully complete their course. We take a collaborative approach to ensure that study needs assessment reports, school partners and university colleagues are consulted to design a complete package of personal support.
