Part Time School Direct Training Programme.


For some people training to be a teacher full-time isn’t possible, perhaps because of childcare issues, or financial constraints. For candidates who have good in-class experience and strong subject knowledge we are now able to offer a part-time course with only 3 days a week in school.  On-line Professional Studies work, preparation and assignment writing can be fitted-in around other commitments.


The part-time course is designed to last a maximum of 18 months, however a good candidate may be able to complete the programme in less time, if they can demonstrate that they have met the QTS standard. Anyone interested in this route will need to be successful at interview and then negotiate the detail of their programme with both the host school, the Directors of the ITT Programme and the Tes Course Director.

"The increase in responsibility was gradual and not too overwhelming."
