School to School

We are delighted to be able to offer 2 pathways for those wishing to train to teach in the Primary sector (age range 5-11):

Primary

Primary Generalist with Mathematics

Your training will blend carefully theory and practice, and will begin with a three week intensive introduction to teaching and learning in the primary school, based at Tudor Grange Academy Solihull. Following this, your weeks will be structured to include days developing a deeper understanding of key issues in the classroom (delivered by outstanding practitioners), and days immersed in school, putting this theory into practice. You will complete placements in two of our carefully selected partner schools from across Solihull and South Warwickshire.

Qualification

As part of developing into a creative, reflective and adaptive practitioner, you will also be awarded 60 Masters level credits through our collaboration with Birmingham City University. This will involve engaging in Action Research about what works in the classroom, and will complement your day to day work as you progress through the year. At the end of the course you will be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), and with your 60 Masters level credits, you will be ready to embark on a long and fulfilling career.

Early Years

Our EYTS programme is designed for those who wish to specialise in early childhood development, leading on education and care for children from birth to five.  EYITT is a recognised government scheme which will lead to Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS), a qualification which enables you to teach children aged 0-5 years in early years settings.

This new course contains a combination of taught sessions and inter-active workshops designed to develop your understanding of how to apply your knowledge of teaching and learning across the whole Early Years Foundation Stage.  Sessions, based at Tudor Grange Academy Solihull, are facilitated by our tutors and leading early years practitioners, who have a track record of excellence in teaching.

You will complete experience in primary school (Key Stage 2) before beginning the programme, and will experience at least three settings during your training. It is a requirement of the course to complete 120 days of assessed practice with the 0-5 year age range, divided into 3 blocks throughout the academic year.

Qualification

EYTS is a one year full-time and fully funded post-graduate course lasting from September to June, leading to the award of Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS).  The National College for Teaching and Leadership funds the course fees. You may be eligible for a bursary to study this course – for more information about funding visit Get Into Teaching.
