Teaching Assistant to Qualified Teacher Status
Teach In Qualified (TiQ) Programme – Teaching Assistant to QTS Programme – Primary – London – September 2018 start
Teach In Qualified is a 6-phase salaried programme that takes graduates from Teaching Assistant to Qualified Teacher Status by gaining paid experience in a school. By starting as a Teaching Assistant, you will have the opportunity to find your feet in the school and get used to the role, before taking on independent teaching responsibilities when progressing through each phase.
As a graduate, you can expect to pay no course fees (funded by the school), receive comprehensive training on teaching theory and pedagogy from your initial role as a Teaching Assistant an excellent network of support from the school, us & our training partner and you will end up with Qualified Teacher Status. The programme does involve academic work, like any initial teacher training programme, but the Teaching Assistant introduction and the 2-year structure will allow you to really get to grips with what you’ll be learning outside of the classroom as opposed to rushing through it.
We are looking for graduates who have an interest in a long-term career as a teacher and who are committed beyond the length of the two-year programme. Ideally, you will have worked as a Teaching Assistant before applying to the programme, but any experience with children (particularly in a school) will potentially be accepted.
* 2:1 or higher Honours degree – 2:2s may be accepted with exceptional experience
* C or above in GCSE (or equivalent) Maths, English and Science
* Experience working with children or in education
