Training


We offer both the SCITT and the School Direct Salaried programmes. Successful completion of either of these programmes leads to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and the academic award of a Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE). The PGCE is validated by the University of East London.

Both courses are a combination of school and centre based training. The training is led by experienced class teachers, subject leaders, university lecturers and educational consultants.

All trainees have a mentor in school to support and advise you as well as a Link Tutor from Henry Maynard Training E17.

SAM_0260School Direct Salaried

This programme leads to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and the academic award of a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).  The programme is currently validated by the University of East London.

Trainees on the School Direct Salaried programme are employed as an unqualified teacher by the school in which they are based and learn ‘on the job’ alongside experienced teachers. As a paid employee there is an expectation that you will be able to teach classes or groups from day one and that you will be “up and running” quite quickly. You can be expected to teach up to 90% of a teacher’s timetable from September although this is generally not the case.
Trainees on the School Direct Salaried programme will be based in one of the schools in the partnership and will attend centre-based training at Henry Maynard Primary School. Initially this will be 2 days per week but as the year progresses it will reduce to one day a week and then less frequently. The remaining days will be spent in school teaching and completing school based tasks.

When applying for a School Direct Programme, you must indicate whether you have a school that is looking to employ you on the School Direct route or whether you would like Henry Maynard Training E17 to find a school for you.
