Our one-year programme involves a powerful mix of self-directed, live training and one-to-one support, for both trainee and their in-school mentor. And at the end of it, trainees will be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) by Teach First and gain their PGCE from our partner Sheffield Hallam University.
