Choosing to work with us gives you control over where you learn to teach and our schools are the perfect environment to start your career. We take trainee preferences very seriously and will take them into account if you have a special reason for wanting to practice in a particular school.
In our group we have: primary schools and secondary schools, mixed schools; boys single sex school; an independent school, academies and local authority schools, even a part boarding school. Our schools are also centres for excellence and innovation, listing specialism in business, computing, languages, maths and science.
You will also get to work with fantastic, positive young people. Our area is culturally diverse and educational aspirations are high amongst young people and their parents. Our students are the best, because of their lively minds, their desire to do well and their willingness to work with adults to achieve their potential. We welcome visits during the school day, so why not contact us and see these fantastic young people as they learn.
Also you can depend on the best support in BSET schools. Training is hard work and you will need the support of an excellent mentor. All of our mentors are excellent practitioners and they are very experienced as we are used to working with over fifty teacher trainees every year. Our training pathways are tailor made, with salaried and fee-paying options to gain QTS and the possibility of gaining experience in a second subject area to improve employability.
Employment prospects within our area are great as demand for teachers is high in our schools. As a teaching school alliance we take continuous professional development very seriously and ensure a seamless transition to the probationary year. BSET SCITT supports NQTs as well as offering a wide range of career development courses that can lead to school leadership.
