Primary Courses for Sept 2024
PRIMARY COURSES FOR SEPT 2024
***Our Apprenticeship Programme G844 PRIMARY SALARIED APPRENTICESHIP, PGCE(M) QTS PGTA In partnership with University of Roehampton is now CLOSED for shortlisting.
The recruitment cycle will open on 10 October 2023 for applications for September 2024 and our list of vacancies for September 2024 can be seen in our vacancies tab on the left.
CHOOSING YOUR SCHOOL
Unlike many providers, we enable you to choose your preferred main host school (or schools) at application. We provide information about our schools to help you decide which places to apply for. Each school interviews independently but we control the process centrally and operate a referral system -see more information in the course documents. Once you have chosen your course, simply email us with a list of your 3 preferred choices of school in descending order and we will send your application on to the schools for shortlisting.
While the DfE offers no bursaries on unsalaried primary courses, many of our schools offer bursaries of their own to successful candidates offered a place on the course (£2,000 - £10,000).
SEARCHING FOR COURSES NATIONALLY
You can compare courses from different providers and see what's available near where you live, on the DfE portal FIND Postgraduate Teacher Training Courses. This is expected to open for Sept 2024 courses on 3 October 2023. Our own courses will also be included in this portal but its still easier to see our vacancies and download the course information document from our vacancies tab. You could use the FIND portal perhaps to compare our courses to those offered by others.
We run a 'live' presentation and Q&A session every fortnight in term time, about getting into teaching. This is very detailed and candidates have found it useful - see tab on left to sign up for one of our sessions.
Otherwise, in term time please email any queries to Adesola Bakare ABakare@sacredh.lbhf.sch.uk or call her on 0208 748 7600 x466
Please note: we anticipate receiving a high volume of applications from overseas. While our university partners can help organise your student visa, for all applications you will need to fund your training. Tuition fees are from £15,000 to £16,500 and on top of this you will need to cover your rent and maintenance costs. Most of our schools will not accept applications from candidates unable to attend an interview in person.
