Why train with us?

We have year on year outstanding results with 100% of our Portsmouth SD trainees successfully gaining employment. The majority have jobs with our Portsmouth alliance schools.

Trainees chose our route as they want to learn 'on the job' whilst gaining the academic rigour of a PGCE. We do not throw you in at the deep end and expect you to teach from day one. We coach and support you along the way. You’ll feel part of the school team from the very start, receiving intensive support from experienced teachers and mentors. That means you won’t be teaching classes unsupported until the school thinks you’re ready.

You’re also equally eligible for a training bursary or scholarship and can apply for the same financial support, such as student loans.
