The Humber Teaching School is now at the forefront of teacher training in the area and is proud to be responsible for recruiting, training and retaining high-quality teachers across the Yorkshire and Humber region.
We believe that a school based route into teaching will give you the best possible start in your career. The Humber Teaching School, in conjunction with our University Partners (Hull University and Bishop Grosseteste University) will provide you with a high-quality School Direct training programme, which provides the best possible opportunities for a successful career in teaching.
What is School Direct?
School Direct is a route into teaching which allows participants the opportunity to work closely with schools to gain their Teaching Qualification.
School-led training options for graduates give a practical, 'hands-on' training experience to graduates in a school. This type of training gives you the chance to learn on the job in at least two schools, learning first-hand from experienced colleagues and putting your new skills into practice from day one.
School-led courses generally last a year and result in the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
Some of the benefits of training with us include:
- Opportunities to work collaboratively in a partnership of schools, some who are recognised nationally for their leading practice
- A comprehensive, high-quality training experience, delivered by outstanding practitioners in supportive partner schools
- 'Immersion Placements' during which you will join your placement school on the first day of term, providing early classroom experience and developing confidence and building on prior experience at your own pace
- Subject Specialism and generic-themed professional development opportunities which are delivered by your placement school, University Partner and The Humber Teaching School
- Experienced and well-trained mentors in placement schools; our selected mentors are outstanding practising teachers who have been recognised for their high-quality teaching and for their experience in supporting trainee teachers
- Access to wider professional opportunities, for example, networked subject development, experiences in different settings and a full range of extra-curricular activities, CPD and staff meetings
- A successful rate of employment in our schools, 100% of trainees secured employment in schools during the last academic year
- Structured professional support following appointment: from Newly Qualified and Recently Qualified Teacher programmes through to Continuous Professional Development to NPQML and NPQSL qualifications
