Case Study

Andrew McAllister – Secondary Music Trainee, 2012-2013

As a graduate I felt the mix of classroom teaching and academic training was the perfect way to introduce me to the world of education. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and friendly and I always knew they were there to help with any issues I may have had.

High Employability

Our trainees have an excellent record when it comes to securing teaching jobs

Our results speak for themselves – 100% of our 2013-2014 trainees qualified as good or outstanding, and more than 90% had employment lined up for the next academic year at the end of their course.

As our 2012 Ofsted report stated: ‘Progression into employment is high, reflecting the effectiveness with which the provider meets local recruitment needs and the good quality of the trainees at the end of the programme.’

As an organisation we have supported more than 4,000 schools in delivering excellent outcomes. We advise schools in areas such as recruitment and performance management, and you benefit from our advice when it comes to applying for jobs and demonstrating how your teaching has improved over time.

Personal Support & Mentoring

The key to successful on-the-job learning is having the right support structure in place

Our 15 years’ experience has taught us that getting you straight into the classroom is the most effective way for you to train. It’s challenging – but the experience makes you a better, more confident teacher.

We design every aspect of your training programme to ensure you have the right help when you need it.

You’ll have two mentors in your school as well as a dedicated Educate tutor who oversees your training. All our tutors are former primary and secondary teachers with extensive classroom experience. They’ll observe, moderate and assess your progress, working with you to ensure you have a nurturing, supportive environment in which to learn.

Why Train With Educate

We give you exceptional training – and support you throughout your career

Educate is your partner for a successful teaching career. We’ve been training teachers for over 15 years and have the resources and expertise to provide you with the support you need during your training and after you become a teacher.

We structure every aspect of training around you, so you finish with the knowledge and experience you need for a confident start to your NQT year. In fact, schools repeatedly tell us that our trainees are incredibly well prepared, and thrive from their first day.

We offer you an exciting opportunity to gain a PGCE at the same time as training in a school. This means you can get the best of practical training and academic study if you want to go down that route.
