Apply to Train to Teach

We know that teachers who have been inspired by high quality teacher training will inspire our students with their knowledge and allow them to flourish. Great
teaching transforms lives and makes futures brighter. If you would like to be part of that we would love to hear from you.

We are part of a ‘school centre for initial teacher training’ known as ‘Teach Kent and Sussex’. This means that teachers who train with us will teach at one of the partner schools within the group and also undertake their professional and subject studies with us too. That means no long journeys to visit universities in London or other parts of Sussex or Kent to complete the teacher training PGCE qualification.

Teach Kent and Sussex was recently rated OUTSTANDING in all areas by Ofsted. Click here to read the inspection report:

The Ofsted report stated that "The overall effectiveness of this popular and rapidly growing partnership is outstanding. Trainees achieve excellent outcomes because their training course, informed by the most up-to-date research available, is carefully sequenced and expertly led. In addition, well-trained mentors provide trainees with strong support and challenge during their school placements."
