The Medway Teaching School Alliance has been awarded 25 places on the Schools Direct teacher training programme. From September 2012 the Alliance will be hosting these placements, largely in conjunction with Canterbury Christ Church University. The Alliance consists of more than 25 Primary, Secondary and Special Schools from across Medway who work collaboratively to provide professional development and leadership training across the area.
The Alliance will be responsible for the recruitment of these placements. The successful applicants will then join the PGCE cohort at Canterbury Christ Church University.
The alliance has been awarded 3 Primary placements and 22 Secondary placements. Subject areas include Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, MFL, Biology, History, PE, Business Studies, Technology, Drama, English, Geography and History.
Successful applicants will need to hold at least a second class honours degree in a closely related subject and have GCSE C grade equivalent in English and Maths as a minimum. They must have a desire to make a difference to the young people of Medway and be willing to take on advice and guidance as they go through their training. Some experience in a school setting would be an advantage. The Alliance is committed to trying to ensure employment of Schools Direct trainees within its schools for the year following training.
