Plumcroft Primary is a large and growing primary school based in Greenwich and encompasses two campuses, both located within easy access of Woolwich Arsenal Station. The school’s population is made up of a number of different traditions and backgrounds and regularly holds community events in order to recognise and celebrate this wonderful array of cultures. 

The school has been a partner of Premier Pathways since 2017 with fantastic success, previous trainees have made a real contribution to the school community and now the Head Teacher is looking to maintain this standard with the next Trainee Primary Teacher.

Being confident in using their initiative and having the desire to go the extra mile in this school community are the key qualities required for role. It is hoped that the successful Trainee Primary Teacher can contribute to the community-driven team and collaborative atmosphere.

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.

Plumcroft Primary School is a fantastic school in which to realise your teaching potential - the application window for this opportunity is now open. Apply today.
