Become a teacher with KMT Teacher Training
Teaching is a rewarding profession ideally suited to recent graduates and career changers. The role is challenging and stimulating but never dull.
KMT Teacher Training
KMT Teacher Training provides practical, hands-on teacher training, taught by experienced, practicing teachers across their network of partner schools in Kent, Medway and South East London.
Training with KMT
With KMT you will undertake trainee-teaching placements in at least two different partner schools. They are able to offer a wide range of placements in urban and semi-rural settings, single-sex and co-educational schools, both wide ability and selective.
You’ll also benefit from KMT's hub-based network of training facilities to further develop the competencies you will need for your professional development across the full range of secondary or primary education.
Teacher training with guidance and support
KMT Teacher Training will support you on your journey.
During each placement, you will be supported by a subject specialist who has been trained to act as your mentor, as well as a senior member of staff who oversees the placement.
You’ll receive regular guidance and support to help you progress through the course while benefiting from their bespoke trainee platform and comprehensive resource library.
Train in a range of subjects
With KMT you can train to teach in Primary Schools or in Secondary Schools teaching Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science, Modern Foreign Languages, English, History, Geography, RE, Business Studies, PE, Drama, Dance, Music, Psychology, Art, DT, Economics, Health and Social Care, Media and Sociology.
School-led training across three routes
Whether you train through the KMT Core Non-Salaried programme or through one of KMT’s Partner Schools through the School Direct Salaried and Non-Salaried routes you will have an opportunity to gain Qualified Teacher Status and work towards a Level 7 PGCE qualification, delivered online and assessed by the Leeds Beckett University.
How do I get into teaching?
To teach in a state school in England, you must have a degree, and gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) by following a programme of Initial Teacher Training (ITT).
The teaching profession looks for the highest quality candidates, so you’ll need to meet the following requirements before you can be accepted:
• ‘O’ Level/GCSE A-C pass grade/new grade Level 4 – 9 in English & Mathematics (and Science for Primary applicants).
• A degree classification of 2:2 or better is required. However, KMT will consider 3rd Class degrees when supported by other strengths and experiences. For Secondary courses this ideally needs to be in an area relevant to the subject in which you will be training.
• Other qualifications and personal experiences of working with young people strengthen all applications considerably.
