You will be based in school 4 days a week and attend training days for the fifth day allowing you to apply the theoretical knowledge you have gained.  If following the part-time route, you will be in school for 2 days a week and attend training on the third. Some of our School Direct partner schools offer a part-time accelerated salaried route which is 3 days in school and one day attending training.  This route is typically for those who already have significant experience in school.

Teaching requirements are progressive with plenty of time to observe others.  However, please note that of following the salaried programme you may be required to teach a higher number of lessons to begin with.  The flexible nature of our programme means we can tailor it to suit you depending on your prior experience in the classroom.
