Graduate Teaching Assistant – Teacher Training

Engage Education has a two-phase Train to Teach programme for Graduates which allows you to work, earn and learn all at the same time. The course is an alternative route to traditional initial teacher training, and offers a postgraduate-level qualification leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), no tuition fees, and the opportunity to earn while you learn.

What does the training entail?

This program will run over two phases. In your first phase, you will work full time in a local school as a member of Support Staff, while receiving online and in-person support from our Partnership and Development team to prepare you for your training programme.

This first phase will include CPD on:

  • Knowledge of The Teachers' Standards
  • Understanding of The Teachers' Standards
  • Reflective Summary of Learning linked to The Teachers' Standards

By the end of Phase One, you’ll be ready to start teaching!

You will work as a teacher while studying for your PGCE and QTS assessment with the National Institute of Teaching and Education (NITE) at Coventry University.
