The Faculty of Education offers PGCE courses to graduates wishing to train to teach in early years & primary, or secondary schools. The courses are taught in partnership with local schools with trainees spending at least 50% of their course working with teachers and children across the East Anglia region.
We aim to create a lively mix of trainees, from different backgrounds, cultures and parts of the country.
We seek to recruit:
- those in their final year at university
- those with higher degrees
- mature applicants who have decided to become teachers after a period in another occupation or a career break
School Direct (non-salaried route)
School Direct is a new route into teaching. Applicants apply direct to a school who, in partnership with an accredited teacher training institution, will manage your training programme towards gaining a PGCE and Qualified Teacher Status. After successful completion of the course there is an expectation that the newly qualified teacher will then go on to work within the group of schools in which they were trained, although there is no absolute guarantee of employment.
