About the course

Trainees on the School Centred Initial Teacher Training programme are placed at one of our partner schools in the borough of Bromley.

Trainees spend Monday to Friday in their placement school with training taking place each Wednesday afternoon, usually at the Bromley Schools' Collegiate training suite. This is based at Chislehurst School for Girls, Beaverwood Road, Chislehurst BR7 6HE. Our facilitators are experienced practitioners, many are senior leaders in our schools.

To meet the ITT criteria trainees must have experience of whole class teaching in 2 school settings. BSC will make these arrangements for you. This will take place in Spring term 1 (January and February ).

The Training course runs from September to July.

  • Qualification achieved is QTS with PGCE. The PGCE element is a bespoke programme delivered at BSC by Canterbury Christ Church University.

Interview process

Successful applications will be invited for interview. We try to give as much notice as possible, however this may be within a week of receiving your application.

The interview will be to assess 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. Which should be delivered orally without powerpoint or any other electronic aid. After which you will be have a formal interview with senior management / headteacher.

You will also be asked to complete a timed written task which will be assessed as part of the selection process. Please do not worry about the content it is to see your use of grammar etc.

How school placements work

Much consideration is given to placements. Each trainee must undertake 2 school placements to gain contrasting experience of teaching.
