We Offer the following routes into teacher training:
School Direct - Tuition Fee - resulting in QTS and also a PGCE (worth 60 Masters credits) validated by The University of Buckingham. Schools Direct training is marketed on Apply via our partner Lead Schools - Robert Bloomfield Academy and INSPIRIT St Thomas More Catholic School.
School Direct - Salaried - an employment based route into teaching for graduates who are mostly already working in a school as an unqualified teacher/Teaching Assistant or who have a school wishing to employ them as a salaried trainee. Whilst we will always try and find salaried places for those without a school, it is not guaranteed. This course results in QTS (a PGCE is also available via this route)
Core PGCE - is our own Provider Lead programme - which is exactly the same as the Schools Direct - Tuition Fee programme, but marketed on Apply as The Bedfordshire Schools' Training Partnership - so, on Apply, all of the above are available, though you may have to look via our lead schools as well as us!
QTS Only - as a provider we offer a QTS only programme as an option to those who graduated with a lower class degree or have UK equivalencies which are not generally accepted by some Universities.
The Office is open term-time only between 8:30am and 4pm Monday - Friday and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have - 01462 817445 :)
