Within the structure of the school one member of the Senior Leadership Team oversees and coordinates ITT and there is a dedicated ITT coordinator. We also enjoy the support of excellent administrative support. We work very closely with the lead school Southend High School for Girls.
There are a number of paths for teacher training
- PGCE - this a university based programme of study leading to QTS as well as a qualification. Application should be made through the Graduate Teacher Training Registry website http://www.gttr.ac.uk/
- School Direct - There are two paths through School Direct.
- School Direct salaried - the replacement for the old Graduate Trainee programme and is for trainees with at least three years in employment before starting the training course. Applicants need to have at least a 2.1 degree classification and three years’ work experience. Trainees train on a school based programme and are funded through the TA at a rate of £20,000 for high priority subjects, £15,400 for other priority subjects and unfunded for other subjects.
- School Direct unsalaried - students can apply for this course at any time after university. There is no salary attached and this is regarded as a continuation of HE study. The programme followed is the same as the salaried School Direct and can include credits towards a master’s degree.
In both School Direct programmes the student will be based in one school but undertake a placement in a second school and will also experience schools in different phases.
If you are interested in the School Direct programme please send a CV to Shoeburyness High School for the attention of Amy Root or Jill Saunders at firstname.lastname@example.org
