We are able to host apprentice teachers in our schools. Partnering with an organisation such as Teach in Kent or TES, we’re able to give you on the job experience and release you for training which supports you to develop into a strong practitioner. This route is particularly well suited to support staff who have a degree and are already working in one of our schools.
