Initial Teacher Training
Teacher Taster Day
We had an excellent response to our Teacher Taster Day.
Registered attendees were interested in teaching a wide range of subjects; Maths, DT, History, PE, English, Science Chemistry, Geography, Physics, Business Studies and Computer Science.
In conjunction with G.I.T.E.P. (Gloucestershire Initial Teacher Education Partnership), the day included talks from our Training Manager who is also a practicing teacher and from the GITEP course leader.
Attendees observed a number of lessons, met trainees, had a tour of the school and had the opportunity to ask questions about the GITEP training course.
"It was a very informative and useful day, everyone was very friendly and welcoming. The information provided was very relevant to my circumstances and the lesson observations were extremely helpful"
"The talks, presentations, Q&A sessions were extremely useful and it was nice to get to chat to the pupils"
Part-time Teacher Training
Gloucestershire Initial Teacher Education Partnership (GITEP) has been awarded a grant by the Department for Education to develop part-time routes to qualifying as a teacher. GITEP is a partnership between all the secondary schools in Gloucestershire and was rated outstanding for secondary teacher training by Ofsted in 2015/16. We recognise that there are many people who are considering teaching as a career but can’t fit a full-time course around family and other commitments. GITEP is offering a flexible route so that trainees spend less time or fewer days per week on their teaching placements but take up to two years to complete the programme. This is only available for secondary teacher training. For more information please contact Tim Connole at email@example.com or visit the GITEP website www.gitep.org.uk
We have good relationships with the Universities of Gloucestershire and Bristol and are currently training a number of PGCE students. We have a dedicated training manager who regularly meets with other local schools to offer support and share good practice.
Subjects that we have been involved in training are; Maths Science, Geography, Art, History, MFL, Business and RE.
We are proud to host Teacher Trainer Days on behalf of GITEP, please check our events page for future dates.
We are happy to accept requests for short term observation from people applying to do a PGCE course. Please email Sharon Bailey in the first instance of your interest firstname.lastname@example.org
