Interested in becoming a Teacher?

In Omnia Excellentia (Excellence in Everything)

This is our commitment to training the teachers of tomorrow.

‘In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.’

There are several routes into teaching, one of the most empowering routes is to learn with and from a team of professionals in inspirational and dedicated schools. School Direct offers an exciting training route for graduates who want to be part of a school team from day one. They will be training alongside knowledgeable and enthusiastic teachers, who are committed to education and who are leaders in their own fields.

Here at Perins School, together with our partners, we have the experience and capacity to deliver outstanding training and education for the next generation of teachers at both secondary and primary level. We are passionate about teaching and learning and we are committed to providing high quality initial teacher training using our expertise in coaching and mentoring together with high levels of individual support.

The School Direct programme at Perins and our partner the University of Winchester is committed to fostering individual growth. We challenge all aspiring teachers to become the best that that they can and we provide learning opportunities at a personalised level. Our aim is to ensure that by the end of the course you will develop as an informed and reflective teacher and you will be able to teach your subject and chosen age range confidently and successfully, by developing your skills as a problem solver, and by encouraging you to explore theoretical ideas and apply them to the practicalities of the classroom.

All aspects of the course are delivered in an interactive way, and can be directly applied to the classroom. This allows the trainee to experience the role of the learner and how it feels to be a pupil in a classroom.

Our Partner schools are very experienced in working with trainee teachers in a wide range of subject areas at secondary and primary phases. This enables us to provide a broad range of courses. As part of our provision, you will gain experience in two schools and you will also have opportunity to experience Teaching and Learning at a school in a different part of the country as well as a specialist provider. You will also be able to experience Key Stages above and below.

We believe that to invest in one teacher today is to invest in the lives of many, tomorrow.

The University of Winchester has a long-established record of excellent initial teacher training. Successful completion of our training course leads to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and the award of PGCE. As part of the course, you will also be able to gain credits towards a Master’s level accreditation.
