Why train with us?


Academies Enterprise Trust Learning Institute is a teaching school alliance consisting of a network of 66 Primary, Secondary and Special schools throughout England.  Our overarching aim is to 'make our best better' because we firmly believe that every child deserves an excellent education and the opportunity to become world class learners.  To fulfil this we need great teachers.

We offer a one-year teacher training programme to graduates and career changers leading to QTS (Qualified Teacher Status), with opportunities to complete a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate of Education) and 60 Masters Credits that may be used towards a subsequent master's degree.

Our programme will be the start of your professional learning journey within our Learning Institute which ensures that you continue to fulfil your full potential throughout your career.  Our learning and develpment opportunities, including our newly qualified teacher programme will train and support you for your first year as a qualified teacher.  

When the time is right for you to take the next steps to achieve your career aspirations, we have programmes aimed at developing and supporting middle and senior leaders.  You will be able to see the difference you are making from day one.

Whilst on your School Direct Training routes, you will work with educational experts in the teaching of your subject and phase. You will observe experienced and outstanding practitioners with additional bespoke theoretical training led by specialists and senior leaders.

The course will start on the first day of the Autumn Term in September and lasts for one academic year.  As part of the programme you will be assigned a professional tutor who will support your development as a teacher through tutorials, visits to your school and guidance with assignments.
