Train to Teach Open Event
Tuesday 5th February 2019
from 5pm – 7pm
St Mary’s Catholic Primary School & Nursery
Join us at this informative and friendly event to give you an insight into the School Direct Programme and why school based Teacher Training is a great option to consider if you are thinking of teaching as a career.
Why School Direct?
By basing your training in a school, you are able to learn from serving practitioners in a classroom context, applying your learning from the first day of your training. Each programme will differ slightly in its overall approach, but in general you can expect to be supported by outstanding practitioners, sharing best practice in teaching and learning. A mentor in school and a dedicated team from our University partners will also support you throughout your training.
This open day will run into the evening to give you time to attend if you are working during the day from 5.00pm to 7.00pm
Who should attend our event?
Whether you are just about to graduate from your current course of study or are in work and considering a change in career, come along to one of our events and see if teaching is the career for you.
What to expect at our event
It will be friendly and informal with staff on hand to offer helpful advice about applying to the programme, give an insight into the training programme and the various sources of funding that are available. You will be able to meet current School Direct trainees to hear about their experience and fully understand why School Direct is such a great option if you are serious about a successful career in Education.
