Train To Teach

“All the different school systems that have improved successfully have done so primarily because they have produced a system that is more effective in doing three things: getting more talented people to become teachers, developing these people into instructors, and in ensuring these instructors deliver consistently” McKinsey (2007).

Perry Beeches attributes part of our success as a school to embracing Initial Teacher Training (ITT) as part of a strategic drive to school improvement. 59% of teaching staff at Perry Beeches completed their teacher training here with us. This ethos of training the best and recruiting them, ensures consistency in the quality of teaching as well as create a climate of learning, thus providing an outstanding educational experience for our students.

Trainee teachers have graded training at Team PB as 100% good or better, we have also been recognised by Universities as an ‘Outstanding’ provider for supporting the development of new teachers. It is due to this success that the Teaching Agency has selected us to be a lead school for the training of new teachers and beyond. We partner a number of Higher Education Institutions in creating innovative programmes for new routes into teaching.

In our training we promise to provide:

– An Institution that develops reflective and innovative practitioners

– An Institution that supports and challenges staff and students to be the best they can be

– High Quality training personalised to your needs

– Quality Support from a trained subject mentor and a professional tutor

– An opportunity to inspire young people

Through our role we also quality assure teacher training across other schools and we have key partners who we recognise as schools that also offer excellent ITT. Trainee teachers attached to Perry Beeches may have the chance to train in these schools also.
