Partner Schools’ Teaching Experience Scheme

The Partnership Development Office, in conjunction with the University’s partner secondary schools, would like to introduce you to an exciting teaching experience scheme that we are piloting from September 2017, exclusively for Kent students.

The Partner Schools’ Teaching Experience Scheme has been designed to allow Kent students, who have an interest in entering the teaching profession, a unique insight into teaching, by offering training and paid work opportunities in the classroom.

Part 1 – Students in their penultimate year of study can access paid School Experience Placements, supporting pupils in the classroom in one of the University’s partner secondary schools.

Stage 2 – Students in their final year of study can apply to take on a Direct-Entry Teaching Internship, receiving training and paid work delivering pre-written teaching materials to pupils in our partner schools.  If suitable trainee teacher vacancies arise within our partner schools during this year, this placement could lead to an offer of a salaried direct-entry teacher training position at the school upon graduation.

The scheme offers extensive benefits, including first-hand classroom experience, training and paid work opportunities.  For further information, please see https://www.kent.ac.uk/ambassadors/files/pstes-information-booklet.pdf, or come along to one of our information sessions:

  • Monday 15 May 2017 at 10am (main Registry reception, Canterbury campus)
  • Tuesday 16 May 2017 at 3pm (main Registry reception, Canterbury campus)

To book a place at one of these sessions, please email Olivia McGlone, O.McGlone@kent.ac.uk.

If you wish to apply for the scheme, please go to www.kent.ac.uk/ambassadors/vacancies and then select ‘outreach vacancies’.

EmpFest – Routes into Teaching and the Teaching Fair, Thurs 3rd Nov

Teaching is a popular career option for many students, as it is both a challenging and rewarding field. But the number of ways you can become a teacher can be confusing – what is the difference between a PGCE and Schools Direct? What do charities or private teacher training companies offer? Can you apply through UCAS, or directly?

To answer these questions and more, a talk on Routes into Teaching will be held as part of Employability Festival on Thursday 3rd November (11-12 in KLT2).

Speakers from the Department for Education, Canterbury Christ Church University’s PGCE programme, and Kent-Teach, an organisation which help Kent schools recruit new teachers, will be coming to campus to tell you about the different ways you can become a teacher, and help you think about what you can do while you are a student to prepare for that first step in your career.

 

The Routes into Teaching session will be immediately followed by the Teaching Fair in the Keynes Atrium. Over a dozen school associations and teacher training providers will be on hand to answer your questions about teaching and what they can offer you.

If you are thinking about a career in teaching, or would just like more information about what teaching involves and the options that are open to you, the Routes into Teaching talk and the Teaching Fair are the key events for you during the Employability Festival. You can sign up to attend the Routes into Teaching session via this link, and you can find out more information about the Teaching Fair here.
