Train to be a Teacher at Chancellor's

We are writing to let you know how fantastic and rewarding teaching is as a profession and, at Chancellor’s, we offer an incredible opportunity to enrol on an outstanding Schools Direct Programme, which leads to Qualified Teacher Status on successful completion.

Once enrolled you will be part of a one year comprehensive training programme and at the same time develop your teaching skills in the classroom with students at Chancellor’s School. In addition, depending on your subject, you could earn up to £30,000 in bursaries during your training year.

We are keen to engage with people who have a passion for their degree subject, have just graduated or are considering a career change and wish to explore the possibility of training as a teacher.

This programme is available to you if you have ….

  • achieved a standard equivalent to a grade C at GCSE in English and Maths
  • successfully completed a degree
  • the capability to meet the required Teacher Standards by the end of training and possess appropriate and intellectual qualities to be a teacher
  • the ability to read effectively and communicate clearly and accurately in standard English, both verbally and written
  • a commitment to safeguarding and keeping children safe in education.

You will also be expected to take part in an interview process designed to assess your suitability to teach and pass an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check to ensure you have no convictions that would preclude you from teaching.

What subjects are on offer?

School Direct places for September 2022 which lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) are available in Art, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Computer Studies, DT, Drama, Economics, English, Geography, History, Mathematics, Media, MFL, Music, PE, Physics and Religious Studies.

The application process for enrolling on the programme for September 2022 opens through UCAS in October 2021 and runs through until May 2022 (although some subjects may close earlier). If you are interested in visiting the school and discussing this opportunity further or would like additional information on a career in teaching at Chancellor’s, please do not hesitate to contact me.
