The Cambridge Teaching School Network’s mission is to recruit and retain high quality candidates into teaching to meet the needs of our locality. The Cambridge Teaching Schools Network offers a range of routes into teacher training to suit different people’s needs and circumstances, including a new flexible salaried route for Physics and Maths. Our diverse alliance of schools, from Peterborough to Hertfordshire, has been involved in delivering high quality teacher-training for decades, and is now in the ideal position to offer a wide variety of School Direct routes into teaching. We offer a range of teacher training courses through our own SCITT, both employment based School Direct (salaried) and School Direct non-salaried routes to gain QTS.  We also offer a  School Direct non-salaried PGCE secondary route in conjunction with the University of Hertfordshire.


Are you considering becoming a teacher but not sure how to go about it? Would you like some information about the multiple routes into teaching?

Our opening evenings are designed for prospective applicants interested in any of our primary and secondary phase teacher training courses, including; School Direct Salaried (secondary only) and Non-Salaried through our own SCITT and School Direct PGCE courses with the University of Hertfordshire. Our open evenings will provide information about our courses, and an opportunity to meet with course leaders and admissions tutors. Please note that our open evenings are aimed at individuals who have already completed or are due to complete their undergraduate studies by July 2017.

Tuesday 18th April 2017, 6.00pm-8.00pm
