Forest Gate Community School is an outstanding school in East London and has been named in the top 50 performing schools nationally. Behaviour here is excellent and pupils have an enthusiasm for learning and an excellent attitude to working hard.

The school has been a partner of Premier Pathways for the previous 3 years, which has allowed them to refine a nurturing environment in which trainees can flourish.

The successful Trainee Chemistry Teacher will be an organised individual, with a real passion for education and the creative and communicative skills required to teach engaging lessons. All members of staff contribute to new initiatives, so a thoughtful trainee who is keen to share ideas will be warmly welcomed.

Forest Gate Community School is led by forward-thinkers who provide unrelenting support for staff and consistently encourage professional and personal development. Formal lesson observations and retrospective bookmarking have been removed, allowing staff to focus on the very best teaching learning whilst remaining in the top 1% of schools nationally for progress.  

We know that two full years in a school will enable you to become a confident and reflective practitioner. Through rich experiences in a consistent setting blended with online learning and insightful residentials, Premier Pathways develops you at a steady pace.

Our salaried programme supports you financially, whilst both a University Tutor and Premier Pathways Mentor nurture your academic progress and wellbeing. This unique combination of no tuition fees, educational support and peer network allows you to focus on the fundamentals of teaching and learning and refining your practice.

The first year of the programme will see you join your school in a support role capacity, working towards the standards of a Teaching Assistant apprenticeship. This will equip you with the skills, knowledge and behaviours required for a successful career in education and allowing you to practice them within the context of your school.

The second year is when your PGCE will commence, taught by the highly esteemed University of Buckingham. Your teaching timetable will increase as you put your theoretical understanding and practical experience to effect, remaining at a pace that is both challenging and comfortable.

Forest Gate Community School is a brilliant school in which to realise your teaching potential – the application window for this opportunity is now open. Apply today.
