VIRTUAL forums are set to help people explore a career in teaching. Uttoxeter Learning Trust Teaching School is running two online open events for people interested in training to teach including recent graduates and those wanting a career change.
Thomas Alleyne’s High School in Dove Bank is one of a group of schools in Uttoxeter Learning Trust that trains primary and secondary teachers.
During the online events, guests will find out about the teacher training programmes available for primary and secondary school teachers starting in September 2021.
Julie Rudge, Headteacher of Thomas Alleyne’s High School, said: “It’s been a challenging time in education during the pandemic but also an incredibly rewarding one seeing how much the school and wider community have been pulling together as we continue to do everything we can to support our young people to realise their potential.
“It’s vital that we also continue to support those new to our profession. At Uttoxeter Learning Trust Teaching School, we have the expertise, knowledge and skills to share with trainee teachers as part of our commitment to inspired teaching, inspiring children and excellence in professional development.”
The training programmes are for secondary teachers who want to develop classroom and teaching practice skills in subjects such as maths, English, biology, chemistry, physics, French, history, geography and PE. Bursaries of up to £24,000 are available for trainees in some subjects.
Uttoxeter Learning Trust Teaching School also works with Keele and North Staffordshire Teacher Education to offer a range of primary teacher training courses. Trainees gain support from an experienced team of staff and have the opportunity to develop their skills across Uttoxeter Learning Trust’s first, middle and high schools.
The first ‘Train to Teach’ virtual open evening takes place this week on Friday, January 22, from 4.15pm until 5pm. A second virtual open evening will take place on Friday, February 12.
