Are you interested in becoming a secondary school teacher?

Here is some information on open days. 

Are you interested in training to become a Secondary school teacher?

Our Academy is part of a growing number that are leading the way for more ‘schools-led’ Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in Doncaster.

This is really important to us because it means that we can choose the very best candidates and develop them into qualified teachers. Being able to choose who we train as teachers and doing that locally helps us in delivering the best outcomes for all of our children in Doncaster.

We are an active member of the ‘Doncaster Regional Alliance For Teacher Training Secondary’ (DRAFTTS) and we are currently seeking applicants to start training from September 2018.

The Alliance of schools works with the ‘Doncaster ITT Partnership’ (a Partnership between our Alliance of Doncaster schools and academies and the Local Authority) as the accredited ITT Provider.

We would be very interested to hear from you if you are thinking of becoming a teacher, or if you know someone who is. We’re looking for people who have a full honours degree (or will have by next September) in their chosen subject area; already have their English and Maths GCSEs (at least a Grade C or equivalent); possess a passion for teaching their subject and want to inspire young people to fulfil their potential.

We’d be delighted to meet with you for an informal discussion about the exciting teacher training opportunities available, so please contact the school to arrange a convenient time. We can also provide you with support and guidance on your application form and possibly offer you some experience in school if you feel that you’d like a ‘taster’ of what teaching would be like.

You’re invited to attend to a Train to Teach Event on Tue 17th April (from 4.30 - 8pm) at the Mercure Danum Hotel, High Street, Doncaster, DN1 1DN.

Or please come along to one of our ‘Open Day - drop-in’ sessions to find out more about schools-based training in Doncaster:
 Thu 19th Apr (8am – 4pm) – The Mary Woollett Centre, Danum Road, Doncaster, DN4 5HF
 Thu 26th Apr (1pm – 4pm) – The Mary Woollett Centre , Danum Road, Doncaster
 Tue 1st May (9am – 12pm) – Ridgewood School, Barnsley Road, DN5 7UB
 Wed 23rd May (12pm – 4pm) – Ridgewood School, Barnsley Road, DN5 7UB
