Q: Can I train as a teacher whilst working in another school as a TA?
A: Our course is a full-time non-salaried QTS course, however we hope to be able to organise teacher training apprenticeships that will allow you to train where you currently work. Please be aware that you must be employed as an unqualified teacher by your host school/organisation. More details will be available in coming months. Due to COVID-19, this training route has, sadly, been put on hold until further notice.
