Outstanding Local Provision – Inspiring Tomorrow’s Teachers

Does your daily work make a real difference to the lives of others? Are you looking for new opportunities and the chance to develop new skills while pursuing a professional career pathway? The school centred programme at CTTC, recognised by Ofsted as outstanding, allows trainees to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) through a combination of taught sessions and practical training alongside colleagues in schools. Graduates can qualify as a teacher in Primary or Secondary education with just a year of training. Part time routes, for both Primary and Secondary, are available. Tax-free bursaries of up to £28,000 are available for eligible trainee teachers in certain subjects. Pastoral support and mentoring is a strength of the programme and local schools are keen to employ trainees from the partnership. The starting salary for teachers is currently £30,000 and many former trainees have moved quickly into leadership and management roles.
