We offer you the opportunity to train while you teach, so you can get the teaching qualifications you need without going back to university. You can train for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) on its own, or you can go for a PGCE as well, earning 60 Masters-level credits along the way.
Training with United Teaching gives you real teaching exposure in a choice of schools across the country. We will support you with subject specialists and dedicated mentors from over 60 of our schools nationwide.
We offer a two-year programme starting with a two-week summer school in August. You will then spend your training year in your host school with additional training one afternoon each week. Assessment will continue throughout the course, based on your classroom experience and achievement measured against the Teaching Standards, while your academic PGCE study will comprise of two academic assignments, assessed by Goldsmiths.
In your NQT year, you will continue to receive training, mentoring and professional development opportunities. Our NQTs benefit from twilight training sessions, mentor visits and additional subject-specific support from the Prince’s Teaching Institute.
