Train to Teach at the Pimlico-London SCITT, part of Future Academies
Are you interested in becoming a teacher?
Our courses provide a robust and knowledge-rich approach to achieving QTS and a PGCE at an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ SCITT, based in the heart of London.
Future Academies is a family of two secondary and three primary schools in South Westminster and Shepherd’s Bush. Despite our seemingly exclusive postcodes, we serve communities that are amongst the most deprived in the country. Nonetheless, we have the highest expectations of our students and what they can achieve, and we are committed to providing them with a rigorous education in a well-disciplined but caring environment that will help them to compete on a level playing field with their more advantaged peers.
Our ITT professional training programme has been designed to allow graduates the opportunity to take responsibility for a small number of their own classes from the start of the academic year, whilst receiving high-quality mentoring and training. As the year progresses, you will be given the opportunity to increase the number of classes you are responsible for. You will undergo a bespoke programme to meet your own individual needs.
What we’re looking for
We are recruiting teachers in all subjects at both primary and secondary level.
You will need to have:
GCSEs in English and maths at grade C or above (and, if applying to teach at primary level, a GCSE in science at grade C or above), or acceptable equivalents;
A UK degree (preferably a 2.1 or a 1st) or an acceptable equivalent (either a degree from another country or significant relevant work experience); and
If your degree is not in your chosen subject, you must demonstrate an equivalent level of knowledge in and understanding of that subject.
The Future Teach Scholarship is sponsored by Future for exceptional candidates with excellent subject knowledge who are applying to teach in the following subjects: Maths, Science (especially Physics), and Modern Languages (French & Spanish). The scholarship entitles the trainee to a one-year contract of employment, to be extended at the governors’ discretion, with the training fee of £9,000 waived, and access to a £29,000 bursary paid over 10 monthly instalments.
How to apply:
If you think you are eligible for the Future Teach Scholarship, please also send a CV and cover letter to Alice Whitehead (firstname.lastname@example.org).
