Train to teach

Why train with us? 

We believe that the best place for trainee teachers to learn how to become excellent classroom practitioners is in a school.  TSAT works in partnership with school direct partnerships (SCITTs) and Universities across the South of England to provide both QTS and PGCE qualifications. You will receive high quality support and training from skilled teachers who are passionate about education.  As a large and successful Trust, we are committed to employing successful trainees and helping them build a long-term career within education.


Where are we?

Excellent employment opportunities

It is expected that successful trainees will go on to work within their host school or group of schools.

A sound induction programme

In order to help you prepare for the year ahead you will be invited to attend an Induction Programme focusedon Behaviour Management.  This is a great opportunity to bond with your fellow trainees and to share your ideas and experience with them. 

High quality mentoring

You will be allocated a mentor who is a subject specialist and will offer you personalised support and guidance throughout the training year. You will meet with your mentor on a weekly basis, setting short and long-term targets and reviewing your progress against the Teachers’ Standards that form the basis of your training. 

Networking and cross school development opportunities

Working within a successful partnership of schools means that you will be provided with opportunities to share good practice and visit other schools, thus benefitting from the expertise of a wide range of highly skilled professionals.
