St Edward's Catholic First School, a strategic partner/member of the Encompass Learning Alliance, is working with a group of seven Catholic Primary Schools within the Berkshire area, along with a Secondary Academy and a Catholic Independent School, to recruit, train and support Initial Teacher Training through the School Direct route (salaried/un-salaried) from September 2015.
The schools are offering a range of pathways: Primary - General, Primary - Maths or secondary phase Physics, MFL, English and Maths.
The ITT/School Direct programme is a year long, school based training programme that results in the recommendation for QTS. Trainees will be based in a local school, supported throughout the course by a high-quality mentor, and will receive training in partnership with the University of Reading. In addition, our Learning Alliance will offer tailored training to meet the needs of trainees at a local level.
Applications will be accepted through the UCAS Teacher Training site (see link below) from the end of October 2014.
