What We Are Looking For

Teaching is an exciting and rewarding career, which allows you to share your passion and make a difference to the lives of children. We encourage all of our academies to be inclusive and to celebrate their unique qualities, while striving to inspire their young people to 'make their best better'. 

You can train to be a teacher whether you are just out of university or if you want to change your career. Everyone that wishes to teach has to complete their initial teacher training (ITT) and there are lots of ways to do it, either as part of a degree or after graduation, at college, university or a teaching school like us. 

If you can answer yes to the following questions and you have decided that you would like to teach at primary or secondary school level, please choose School Direct with Academies Enterprise Trust Learning Institute: 

1. Do you want a fulfilling career where you can make a profound difference? 

2. Do you have a passion for learning and inspiring others? 

3. Do you want to join a supportive profession with opportunities for progression? 

4. Do you love working with children? 

In addition it is desirable that you: 

1. Have visited the school you are applying to and others in order to observe and gain experience of how teaching and learning is organised in an educational environment. 

2. Have read and can discuss current educational thinking e.g. The Times Educational Supplement (available on Fridays or online at www.tes.co.uk/) or the Department for Education website:
