Join Our Partnership
Organisation’s register of interest
We are regularly approached by other Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs) and schools who are keen to design a partnership that best fits their recruitment needs. Since we train new teachers in all subjects and age-phases this means we can adapt to suit your changing profile year to year. We work with a wide range of placement schools, with a significant number from the independent sector who are keen to exchange trainees and share in the knowledge-led movement of curriculum design and assessment.
We are also often approached by the Department for Education to host innovative programmes. In the past we have been involved in Researchers in Schools and Now Teach which attracts new teachers to the profession in shortage subject areas. We are now working with Future Teaching Scholars to recruit exceptional Maths and Physics teachers into schools, and were one of the first teacher training providers in the country to start recruiting for the Post-Graduate Teaching Apprenticeship, launched in 2017.
The candidates we train have a wealth of subject knowledge and experience that serves the classroom well.
Future Teaching Scholars
Future Teaching Scholars is an organisation that recruits secondary-school leavers with high academic achievement to become teachers of Maths or Physics. Candidates applying for the programme are required to have at least a grade B or above in A Level Maths or Physics. They are then sponsored through their undergraduate degree in Maths or Physics, and their Initial Teacher Training.
Their tuition fees are covered by Future Teaching Scholars.
Scholars are paid a salary on the unqualified teacher pay-scale by the host school.
If you would like to join our partnership, and become a host school for one of these outstanding scholars, please do get in touch.

Post Graduate Teaching Apprenticeships
We were one of the first teacher training providers in the country to begin the Post Graduate Teaching Apprenticeship, a level 6 apprenticeship aimed at candidates with experience in schools. This excellent programme provides candidates with the same training and support as our tuition-fee route, and candidates train towards obtaining Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and the Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).
The apprenticeship route is a salaried route.
Tuition fees for this route are £9,250 which can be funded through the school's apprenticeship levy.
In addition to the trainee teachers' fees being paid, the Department for Education provides grant funding to lead schools in partnerships employing postgraduate apprenticeship trainees. This grant funding is in addition to funding available from the Education and Skills Funding Agency and will be payable at the following rates by trainee teacher:
|Training Subject||Grant per trainee teacher|
|Chemistry, Classics, Computing, Mathematics, Modern Foreign Languages, Physics:||£17,400|
|Primary Mathematics, Biology, Design And Technology, English, Geography, History, Music, Religious Education||£11,100|
The trainee should be paid a salary on the unqualified teacher scale. The salary is at the discretion of the Head teacher.
Teaching apprentices can be asked to teach up to 21 periods per week from the beginning of their training year, which do not need to be supervised. The apprentice should be employed for a full 12 months, and provide evidence of meeting the standards in this time. As this route requires the trainee to teach alone and at higher loading, we expect applicants to have experience within schools.
If you are a Head or responsible for teacher recruitment and/or training in your school please let us know how we could develop a partnership with you.
