Make a difference every day
Brooke Weston Academy Teaching School offers a range of exciting Initial Teacher Training programmes leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) across a range of subjects and age stages. Our strong, ever-growing, network of expertise means that we are at the forefront of innovative practice in this area.
Working with our university partners, we have combined the best elements from a range of training routes, ensuring that trainees graduate from the course feeling supported, confident and well equipped for teaching. We take pride in ensuring that all our Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) are provided with excellent opportunities for career development, receive high quality ongoing support and that this is underpinned with a passion and commitment to improving the life chances of young people.
A unique bespoke training programme
All our programmes include weekly training days with other trainees. This provides time for focused activities on teaching and learning, opportunities to innovate and invaluable time with your network of peers. These days are carefully tailored and personalised to your needs, ensuring that we are agile to your needs as early stage teachers throughout the duration of your training year.
All our teacher training courses lead to QTS (Qualified Teacher Status), a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate of Education) and 60 Masters Level credits.
