About the course

The programme consists of school centred training from the beginning of September through to the end of June.

Four days per week are spent in school observing, team planning and teaching, leading to solo teaching and one day per week is spent in a teaching and learning conference day which will usually be held in Tarleton Academy’s Conference room.

The majority of the conferences will focus on planning for learning and teaching and provide you with the knowledge, skills and understanding so that you are able to be a highly effective teacher.

Other conferences will have an academic focus where you will work with staff from Liverpool John Moores University to develop Masters Level 7 work.

Placements

You will have 2 equal placements in two contrasting schools. In addition, there will be other opportunities which will include:

• A primary school

• A SEND school

• A challenging school and Sixth Form experience

As you progress through the programme, your timetable and teaching load will be bespoke to your needs and determined by your confidence and competence on the programme.

We recruit candidates who have the potential to be highly effective teachers and we aim for all trainees to be ‘outstanding’ by the end of their year training with us.

Teacher training designed by our schools’ outstanding teachers and leaders will ensure a firm grounding in practical skills. Spending more of your training in the school environment, for some trainees, is proving to be the best grounding for a career in teaching. Our programme is designed to create the next generation of highly effective teachers who will help lead our schools to success.

Interview process

If your application is successful we will call you for interview.

All candidates will complete a written task. The ability to communicate clearly and grammatically in spoken and written Standard English will be explored throughout the written task and the whole interview process completed on the day.

All candidates will plan and deliver a 20-minute session in which a skill and subject concept should be taught to a small group of pupils, observed by some members of the interview panel. We will look at your personal characteristics including flexibility, independence and resilience and your interpersonal skills.

All candidates will participate in a 15-minute question and answer session led by pupils.

All candidates will be formally interviewed. Information collated from the written task, the taught session and the pupil panel, including references will be utilised to support the interview. The interview panel will consist of a number of staff from across the SCITT Partnership along with a Subject Lead.

This will allow us to talk further and discuss your subject knowledge, reflection of any prior experience in a secondary school , your knowledge of issues linked to secondary education and your commitment to a career in teaching

You will be expected to provide an example of when you have demonstrated leadership and what you learned from this experience about yourself and your leadership style.
