Aims of The Programme

The Programme Aims to:

  • Enable trainees to achieve recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status and gain the award of Post Graduate Certificate of Education at Masters level;
  • Increase the supply of appropriately trained, suitably qualified and inspirational teachers in Yorkshire primary schools;
  • Provide access to quality training and professional development for trainee teachers.

Programme Learning Outcomes

Trainees who successfully complete the programme will demonstrate:

  • That they have met the Teachers’ Standards;
  • A secure and detailed subject knowledge required by the National Curriculum;
  • That they are fully prepared to begin their teaching career;
  • That they are life-long learners;
  • That they have high expectations of themselves and their pupils;
  • A commitment to teaching.

The programme is structured to support a gradual development and proficiency in the Teachers’ Standards.  Trainees are supported by school based tutors who move them from an apprentice teacher to a competent and thoughtful professional.

It really was a light bulb moment as I started to understand how the curriculum informs the assessment of each pupil which then feeds into planning which results in giving the pupils targets that they can meet every lesson.
