We are a salaried initial teacher training provider and graduate programme
Phase One is infinitely flexible because we understand that some applicants apply for our programme and already possess a wealth of experience as unqualified teachers or that they were qualified outside of the UK, while others hold a term’s worth of experience or expertise within their subject.
Essentially, some trainees will be ready to hit the ground running, while others will need to take a slower and more staggered approach. Phase One allows you to be eased in, before you take on the additional responsibility of their PGCE, apprenticeship or the assessment-only route.
Before applying to you MUST HAVE: An Honours degree – this can be any subject. At least a term of experience working in a mainstream school. This can be through an agency or direct employment and in either primary or secondary setting [applicants with voluntary experience, but no employed experience, may still be considered, depending on what this experience consisted of.
Most of our Phase Two trainees enrolle on a salaried PGCE in partnership with National institute of Teaching and Education (NITE), while teaching no fewer than 12 hours a week, indepentantly. With three entry point in the year Grad2teach and your partner school can be certain that you're begining the PGCE at the right time for you! This has led to a 100% pass rate for our Phase Two trainees.
As the PGCE pathway does not suit all of our trainees we also offer an apprenticeshipand an assessment- only route, depending on your existing experience and what is more suitable for you and your school.
Some trainees with substantial teaching experience may be fast-tracked straight onto Phase 2 of our programme, if their school agrees that they are ready.
Before Phase Two (PGCE) you we will need: A GCSE in English, Science and Mathematics grade C/4+
Grad2Teach make our trainees like good BBQ – low and slow. For some trainees this can mean as little as a term on Phase One – for others, it can mean up to three. However, in some cases, trainees will meet the criteria to join our Fast Track programme. Fast Track applicants will need:
A relevant Honours degree in their chosen subject.
Hard copies of their GCSE’s certificates in English and Maths C/4+. Primary applicants will also need Science.
At least a term’s worth of experience working in a full-time teaching role including planning, marking and assessment.
