Drapers Brookside Junior School is looking for a confident, dedicated individual to join them as a Trainee Primary Teacher. The school aims to be recognised as a centre of excellence, where learning is fun and high standards are achieved. As such, the successful Trainee Primary Teacher will be able to create an aspirational learning environment where pupils of all ability can thrive.

The school has partnered with Premier Pathways for the past 3 years and has successfully trained 3 teachers through the programme, with 2 more currently in their training. This is an excellent place for a Trainee Primary Teacher – the school is incredibly familiar with the programme plus has past and present trainees for additional support!

Drapers Brookside Junior School sits at the heart of its East London community and is part of a 5-school trust which heavily values input and the development of every single member of the organisation. The school has a real family spirit, and as a hub of the area offers excellent facilities that are available to all.

The school wants everyone to feel a part of something inspirational, to be proud of the achievements of individual pupils and of their collective successes. To contribute to this collaborative effort, ample training is available for all members of staff as well as frequent team building days.

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.
