The programme is designed with a clear framework that enables all trainees to be closely monitored and supported, coupled with robust processes to help them strive to meet the school’s high expectations.
The successful Trainee Science Teacher will have a clear passion for the teaching profession and can look past the area of social deprivation and get behind the vision of the school where knowledge matters and academic excellence is the goal, whilst ensuring all students are enjoying their learning.
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.
