Train to Teach

To become a qualified teacher, you need to successfully complete teacher training. This will involve classroom practice, academic study and performance assessments.  When you’ve completed your training, you will be able to begin an exciting, challenging and rewarding career in which you will have the privilege of developing and shaping the lives of the young people you work with.

There are several routes you can choose to become a qualified teacher, for example, an academic PGCE course, university led-training or school-led training.  The choice is yours!

Tandridge Learning Trust works closely with education partners to provide excellent opportunities in both our primary and secondary schools.  Our SCITT (school-centered initial teacher training) routes ensure trainees receive expert guidance and support from experienced and enthusiastic coaches and mentors.  Our schools work collaboratively as part of the South East Learning Alliance or the Tandridge Learning Alliance and offer School Direct courses particularly for those who hope to secure a role in the network of schools where they train.

For further details, please enquire with the Headteacher at one of our schools.  For placements at Warlingham School & Sixth Form College, please contact Paul Kinder, Senior Deputy Headteacher.  Alternatively, our HR Department, will be pleased to help you.

Thank you for your interest in our teaching programmes.  We look forward to receiving your application and supporting you to become a fantastic and outstanding teacher!
