Make a difference and inspire the next generation

You may remember a truly brilliant teacher from school who made a real difference to your life. As a teacher you can use your knowledge and passion for your subject to help children unlock capabilities and talents that they didn’t even know they had. You’ll develop a wide range of transferable skills for yourself in the process, too.

In addition to planning and teaching a range of engaging lessons, you can indulge in your hobbies and interests as part of your work by getting involved in after-school clubs, trips or sport.

And there are even generous bursaries that can help you fund your training!

Successful partnerships underpin our training pathways.

We offer a range of routes for graduates which will enable you to train in the most effective way in the area that you want to start your teaching career.

In 2016/17 we are recruiting talented, enthusiastic and inspiring graduates to:

Primary School Direct through

·       University of Hertfordshire

·       Suffolk and Norfolk School Centred Initial Teacher Training

Should you have any questions about any of our pathways please do call us on 01787 314317 and we will be only too happy to help and offer guidance.

Rewards of teaching

As most teachers will tell you, there’s no such thing as a ‘typical’ day at work. That’s because no two days are the same – you’re unlikely ever to be bored by a lack of variety. It’s also a career that offers great benefits, opportunities for you to use a wide range of skills and inspire students in the subject you love.

Teachers’ salaries

When you choose to become a teacher, you’ll be joining a profession that offers a competitive starting salary with plenty of opportunity for career progression. This means you’ll not only be making a difference, but you’ll be rewarded for your contributions with excellent opportunities to climb the career ladder and receive pay rises.

As a newly qualified teacher you’ll begin on a salary of at least £22,467 (as you rise up the pay ranges, you could earn as much as £115,582 as a headteacher, in inner London).

Schools now have more freedom to develop their own pay policies to attract and retain the teachers that have the greatest impact on their pupils’ learning. So what you’re paid will be linked to performance and not length of service – meaning you can increase your salary faster than ever before.

The pay ranges shown in this table are for 2016/2017, and are revised annually.

Additional rewards

In addition to the basic salary you’ll earn, there are other great benefits available including:

·       holidays – you’ll get more days than many people in other professions, though teachers work for 195 days per year in school, and tend to do some work during their holidays

·       a generous pension – when you’re employed as a teacher you’ll automatically be a member of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme

·       special educational needs (SEN) allowance – if you work as a qualified teacher with pupils with SEN, you could be eligible for an SEN allowance of no less than £2,085 and no more than £4,116 per annum

·       teaching and learning responsibility (TLR) payments – additional money if you take on more responsibilities

Becoming a teacher doesn’t just offer you financial reward. You’ll get the chance to make a difference to students’ lives on a daily basis.
