GLA Primary School initial teacher training

At the Green Light Alliance, we run a Primary Initial Teacher Training programme in association with our diverse and inspiring partner schools across Kirklees. We work in conjuction with the University of Cumbria who will award our Primary PGCE; this carries 60 credits at level 7, 'Masters Level'.

Our innovative training programmes; specialising in 3 -7 years and 5 – 11 age phases and include three placements in two contrasting primary schools (October to November, December to February, April to July); two different key stage; a block research week  teaching as a group in a third school; experience days in KS3 and additional specialist educational settings. Our courses come with QTS.

Over the years, we have developed our programme of practical and theoretical training sessions. However, we pride ouselves in being flexible and will tailor them to meet your needs and make the most our your knowledge and talents. Training sessions will be based in many of our partner schools, who are committed to providing the highest standard of education for children, staff and trainees and will be led by specialist teachers and senior leaders.

 

As an alliance we have a wide range of nursery and primary school partners that can offer teacher training placements across all Key Stages. In school you will observe and work alongside teachers who will help you build your knowledge and experience of wider school responsibilities. These additional specialisms will include pastoral care, special educational needs, working with outside agencies, learning offsite and high quality learning and teaching.

We have an excellent track record of developing oustanding future teachers, all of whom have secured teaching posts, many within our own Alliance.

We are committed to helping you develop professionally, if you gain a teaching post with one of our Alliance schools we will support you through your NQT year and beyond. Our extensive CPD opportunities could take you throgh to management level.
