Salaried teacher training

If receiving on the job training while you earn a salary appeals to you – there are a number of opportunities to apply for a salaried teacher training course. 

 

Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeships

A group of experienced schools and teachers have led the design of this postgraduate teacher training course. This programme offers a combination of classroom teaching, practical learning and a salary.

You’ll receive a combination of classroom teaching and 20% of your time is allocated to off-the-job training as you work towards Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).  In addition, you’ll be required to undertake an end-point assessment (EPA) in the final term to ensure you’re on track to be an effective newly qualified teacher. 

School Direct (salaried)

Similar to the Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship, you'll have the opportunity to earn a salary and train to become a qualified teacher – learning from experienced teachers.

Whichever salaried course you choose, both will help you to develop your skills to become a highly effective qualified teacher. Trainees on salaried programmes are recruited and employed directly by schools, and may continue teaching in their school following training. 

Both courses will award a QTS, the cost of which is covered by the school – check with your training provider to find out if this also includes a PGCE and/or Master’s-level credits. 

You can find either of these courses on UCAS Teacher Training, from 24 October, by selecting ‘School Direct (salaried) training programme’ in all training programme field. Available Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship courses will be listed with the suffix ‘PG teaching apprenticeships’, without this suffix they’ll be School Direct (salaried). 

Salary

You’ll be paid and taxed as an unqualified teacher. The salary awarded will differ between schools; you should check the salary with the school before you apply for either salaried routes.

Teach First 

Alternatively, if you’re a graduate or career changer with a 2:1 or above, you could earn a salary with Teach First
