How school placements work

Each trainee undertakes three placements. Two are at the parent school and the other at the twin school. We look for all trainees to have a contrasting experience in their placements and to have experience in all key stages including sixth form.

We work with a number of other partner schools in the local area and look carefully at selecting the best placement schools for your personal and professional needs.

As this is a School Direct course nearly all of the training is spent in school.

About the accredited provider

For our secondary course we work hand-in-hand with GITEP, a long established, outstanding provider who support the work of trainee teachers across Gloucestershire and beyond. Our secondary PGCE course is accredited by the University of Bristol who has a superb academic reputation in developing teachers and educational research. Our primary course is run with the University of Gloucestershire that have also an excellent long-standing tradition of training teachers and a very well established course.

Training with disabilities and other needs

As a school familiar with supporting pupils with special needs, we are more than ready to support candidates with disabilities and particular needs. In the past, this has included supporting teachers with dyslexia and giving them extra support with preparing teaching resources and preparing for academic assignments. We are also always on hand to help trainee teachers who are finding the strains of the course difficult and offer 1:1 mentor support and have a team of training managers ready to give support, advice and guidance. We are able to tailor our course at times to fit the needs of each individual and this has, in the past, enabled some trainees who have had difficulties to complete the course and enter teaching successfully. We are also very aware that practical arrangements and geography play a key part in choosing a teacher training provider, especially for the many career changers who apply. We look to accommodate this as best as possible when deciding upon placement schools.
