Erdington Academy is part of Fairfax Multi-Academy Trust, where all strive to develop ambitious, articulate resilient learners, regardless of background, with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to excel in modern Britain. 

The school is committed to the highest standards of presentation, behaviour and achievement and believes that a calm, purposeful environment is the key to successful learning and achievement. Teachers here encourage pupils to confident, responsible citizens who have an understanding of the world around them; they encourage them to make a positive contribution to the school and to their local communities to prepare them for life in modern Britain.

Extra-curricular activities are a strength here, with a Leisure Centre and sports hub there are a variety of sports on offer including free activities for young people and families, so any Trainee Science Teacher that wants to get involved in this area will be warmly welcomed!

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.

Erdington Academy is a fantastic environment in which to realise your teaching potential - the application window for this opportunity is now open. Apply today.
