Medway Valley Training Partnership has a large range of secondary subjects available at one or more of our partner schools. So, if you are looking for a Science placement, Languages, Humanities, Arts or one of the myriad of other teacher training courses available, we will have a school wiling to train you.
Our schools can all be found in the Medway and Maidstone areas of Kent and include, Grammar and Secondary Modern, Mixed and Single-sex schools, Faith and Comprehensive schools that will equip you for a career in all style of schools throughout the country.
Most of our courses focus on the teaching of Key Stage 3 and 4 students but, unlike many providers, we are in a unique position in that we are able to give you experience of teaching Key Stage 5 as well.
Our training is practical in nature, with the majority of your time being spent in the company of experienced teachers, learning to teach in the classroom environment. This training is enhanced by specialist studies and professional lectures that development your pedagogical and theoretical knowledge and understanding.
All courses can be taken for the “Qualified Teacher Status” (QTS) qualification or with a top up from Leeds Beckett University to the “Postgraduate Certificate of Teacher Training” (PGCE).
Due to the limited capacity of each school, most are only able to offer one placement per subject area and therefore early application for your preferred school is essential if you want to secure a training opportunity there.
Unlike some providers, Medway Valley Training Partnership allows you to apply to the school of your choice and we aim to give you a decision as to whether the school wishes to follow up your application within 10 working days from receipt of it from DfE APPLY.
