This is a year-long programme of training to specialise in either 3-7 Years or 5-11 Years.
You will train for part of your time at the University of Leicester under the PGCE programme and you will be based in schools for 24 weeks.
We will organise your school based experiences and these will cover the primary age range. Prior to starting in September 2019, you will be introduced to the schools and will be able to start to form relationships with key people.
The training starts in September 2019 and ends in July 2020
The base school is Newcroft Primary Academy for all trainees. Other schools within our Trust are also used for the school based training. You'll be based in one school in the Autumn term, a different school in the Spring term and back to the first school for the Summer term. This gives you a range of experience and has the advantage of meaning that you don't need to get used to a new school again in the Summer term; you can hit the ground running!
You'll spend 24 weeks in schools.
You will attend the University of Leicester for the 'Taught Strands' of the training for the other weeks of the year.
