Help the next generation to grow with Ark Teacher Training’s outstanding programme. Our unrivalled support network during and after your training will give you the tools you need to reach your potential. We offer the perfect mixture of theory and classroom practice, allowing you to become the best teacher you can be for our amazing young people.
You will be based in Portsmouth at Ark Charter Academy where you will join a community of dedicated teachers, support staff, and senior leaders whose main goal is to inspire a passion for learning in our young people. They believe in recognising hard work and providing opportunities for both professional and personal development.

QTS (Qualified Teacher Status)
PGCE (postgraduate certificate in education) in your chosen teaching subject
You can progress onto our highly supportive, tailored Early Career Teacher (ECT) programme
