Unlock the potential of the next generation – and yours!
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’ll get the unique benefit of a vast and vibrant community across our network of 38 schools but you will be based in your school from day one, having an impact straight away. We believe that every child, regardless of their background, deserves to have access to a great education, so our schools make a difference where it matters most.
We work around the UK so you also get to pick where you want to be based – London, Birmingham, Portsmouth or Hastings.
How is the programme structured?
Unlike a university-based PGCE, you will be based in a school of your choice from day one watching your students’ progress. At the end of you first year you’ll have achieved the following:
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
