Expert Led Training Programme
We use local schools drawing on experienced leaders and teachers for training and arrange a system of mentoring support for the whole year, to enable you to adapt, learn and succeed as a teacher.
During the year a calendar of training is provided in local venues (and online) cover foundation subjects, core subjects, specialist areas (such as Early Years and Special Educational Needs) and enrichment topics. This is complemented by training in planning, assessment, metacognition, classroom practice and behaviour. Ensuring Trainees leave the year with a full suite of tools, resources and knowledge to deliver the whole curriculum.
Our practical programme sees trainees graduate with Qualified Teacher Status as well as 120+ days of experience in school. This will help you to stand out as a highly rated Early Career Teacher in the search for that first teaching role.
Completing your School Direct year with Generate Teaching Hub means your qualification is accredited by Liverpool Hope University.
Being part of this wider academic community provides access to professional support and curriculum expertise from their academic and professional staff. Trainees will attend a total of 12 university based teaching sessions with opportunities for research and collaborative projects which will inform evidence based practice in the class room. Successful completion of two assignments for assessment set by Liverpool Hope University is a requirement to attain a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
As a postgraduate seeking dedicated further study to become an excellent teacher, there is the expectation that you will be able to study at a Masters level. You will attend set lectures and tutorials and engage in group work and peer support to develop your experience.
Throughout the course you will build files of evidence which will be used to prompt discussion in your placement schools and to assess progress towards final assessment and recommendation for QTS. An experienced mentor will support you in checking and reviewing your file.
Trainees’ professional practice and conduct will be assessed according to Department for Education (DfE) and Liverpool Hope University (LHU) requirements. Trainees will be able to demonstrate ambitious expectations for their pupils’ achievements, the teaching profession and for their own professional development. Full assessment and the award of QTS will be awarded at the end of Initial Teacher Training against the Teachers’ Standards.
