Trainee & Mentor Handbook 2017-18
We Offer the following routes into teacher training:
School Direct - Tuition Fee - resulting in QTS and also a PGCE (worth 60 Masters credits) validated by The University of Buckingham. Schools Direct training is marketed on UCAS via our partner Lead Schools - Robert Bloomfield Academy and INSPIRIT St Thomas More Catholic Teaching School.
School Direct - Salaried - an employment based route into teaching for graduates with 3 years or more work experience which results in QTS (a PGCE is also available via this route)
Core PGCE - is our own Provider Lead programme - which is exactly the same as the Schools Direct - Tuition Fee programme, but marketed on UCAS as The Bedfordshire Schools' Training Partnership - so, on UCAS, all of the above are available, though you may have to look via our lead schools as well as us!
QTS Only - as a provider we offer a QTS only programme as an option to those who graduated with a lower class degree or have UK equivalencies which are not generally accepted by some Universities.
The Office is open term-time only between 8:30am and 4pm Monday - Friday and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have - 01462 817445 :)
