Canterbury Cross Primary School is a large and successful primary in Birmingham, maintained by Canterbury Cross Education Trust and serving over 400 pupils. The school has created an inspiring culture where children have a clear passion and enthusiasm for learning, largely due to the incredibly considered curriculum which integrates exciting content and the school values of SHARE (Safety, Health and Happiness, Achieve and Enjoy, Respect and Equality).

Canterbury Cross has successfully trained previous cohorts of Premier Pathways trainees who are now working there as NQTs, making this the ideal school to start your career in teaching!

Driven by strong values that match those of the school, the successful Trainee Primary Teacher will work amongst a supportive and creative team. This support, in collaboration with your Premier Pathways network, ensures you will thrive on your professional learning journey.

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.

Canterbury Cross Primary School is looking for a Trainee Primary Teacher who can reflect the school’s ethos and dedication to a holistic education. Purposeful individuals with a creative flair, a desire to contribute and a determination to advance the life chances of young people will be warmly welcomed and valued here.
