Where will I be placed?
Our Initial Teacher Education programme adopts a school-based approach. We believe the most effective way to experience all aspects of school life is to be based in a school environment, learning to teach with expert classroom practitioners, supplemented by practical, knowledge-rich subject and pedagogical training each week. Links to all our main placement schools can be found here:
Primary Phase within Future Academies:
We believe the most effective way to experience all aspects of school life is to be based in a host school throughout the year. To supplement this, trainee teachers will also participate in three focused placements. Trainee teachers do a three week placement in the second term, which will offer them a contrasting experience within our network of excellent schools. This network includes many independent, grammar and specialist schools.
Furthermore, trainee teachers will also benefit from a week’s placement in a primary (for secondary trainees), or a secondary (for primary trainees). They will also gain experience within the Tri Borough Alternative Provision.
Working in a school not on this List?
If you are working in a school already you may be able to do your placement there if they are happy to support you as an unqualified teacher.
