Event description

Description

Are you or anyone you know interested in considering a career change and would like to consider training to teach? As a teaching school, Valley Invicta Teaching School Alliance, offers the opportunity to train to teach through salaried and non-salaried School Direct courses, available in the following subjects for 2018/2019 Art and Design, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Computing, Dance, Design and Technology, English, Geography, Health and Social Care, History, Maths, MFL, Music, Physics, PE, Religious Education, Social Science, Primary General and Primary General with Maths teaching. These courses are delivered at Invicta Grammar School, Valley Park School, Maidstone Grammar School, the VIAT primary schools along with a number of other schools in partnership with Canterbury Christ Church University, University of Brighton, University of Sussex and the University of Greenwich. Bursaries are available for some non-salaried post dependant on the subject. A classification of a 1st class degree in Physics for instance, can attract a bursary of £30,000. Ideally you would have graduated with a degree with a 1st or 2.1 degree. For primary teaching your degree can be in any subject but for secondary it should be relevant to your chosen subject. You must have GCSEs at grade C or above (or equivalent) in Maths and English (and Science for Primary courses). You will also need to sit and pass the Professional Skills Tests required to embark on the Train to Teach Schools Direct course. Interested? Then we would like to offer you the opportunity to further your interest in our Train to Teach programme by offering you an opportunity to join one of our School Experience days at Invicta Grammar School, Valley Park School and Maidstone Grammar School. The day will offer an opportunity to see all three schools in action, observe a number of lessons in each school, have an opportunity to ask further questions of department and senior staff as well as understand a little more about the teacher training courses. Please note this is not an open day for parents. The sole purpose is to offer those interested in a change of career and wishing to consider teacher training the opportunity to explore a teaching career.
