Step Teachers have been asked to recruit the next generation of teachers for a brand new Initial Teacher Training (ITT) initiative called Grad2Teach.
Are you a natural leader with a resilient, caring nature? Are you a determined, passionate and self-reflective graduate looking to start a career in teaching? Grad2Teach is your first step in the right direction. Our paid ITT programme offers a new opportunity to teach, train and – if successful – gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
With Grad2Teach you will work to complete a one or two year course, with a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). You will gain experience working in at least two schools, earning a salary as you train. Upon passing the course, you will have completed your PGCE and be a qualified teacher with QTS.
To be eligible for this programme you must meet the following requirements:
- Have a university degree with a minimum of a 2:2 classification
- Have attained grade C or above in GCSE Maths and English for Secondary Teacher Training
- Have attained grade C or above in Maths, English and Science for Primary Teacher training
- Have determination, resilience and a patient, caring attitude
