School Direct Salaried Flexible Route

In partnership with Anglian Gateway, another Teaching School Alliance in the local area our first cohort of flexible-route trainees began their two-year programme in September 2016. This route is available in the following secondary subjects; Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science.

The programme for this flexible salaried route, will lead to a QTS qualification with The Cambridge Teaching Schools Network Training Partnership SCITT, over two years. It is aimed at high quality candidates who are career changers and who favour a part-time teacher training programme that is flexible enough to meet their personalised needs.

Our rigorous recruitment, selection and induction processes ensure that trainees are well-matched to placement schools and that they make early progress.

This programme will provide our trainees with access to robust introduction to and preparation for the teaching profession. The effective combination of academic study and practical skills development enables trainees to reflect on and improve their teaching practice with a focus on broadening the experience of the teacher's role beyond the classroom.

We also provide high quality subject-specific mentoring that allows trainees to regularly reflect on their practice, and gain support from, experienced colleagues.  This enables rapid development of their subject knowledge and pedagogy in a school setting.

All flexible-route trainees will be employed by a CTSN partnership school for two school years, 2017-2018 and 2018-2019. There will also be a contrasting serial placement in another CTSN partnership school in year 2. You can find out more details about this programme by looking at the handbook.
