What is Teacher Training?

To teach in a UK school, you need to hold Qualified Teacher Status by completing a Initial Teacher Education or Training programme based at a university, school or college in the UK.

There are a number of routes you can take to become a teacher which can all fit around your lifestyle and qualifications.

At Ventrus Teaching School Alliance we are offing school-led ITT programmes.

You will be based in a school throughout the year working closely with the class teachers. During the year, you will undertake a 6-week placement in another school in the opposite key stage to the one at your base school.

Along with this you will have 30 training days with the education partnership, Somerset SCITT, where you will meet up with other trainees to complete the theory side of your training.

We have 14 Primary Schools and 1 Secondary school in our Trust across Devon and a number of partner schools we work with. We would work with you to identify the best match for you. Click here to see the schools within our Trust.
