Train to Teach in England - For Free
Have you completed a Level 8 degree & thinking of going on to do teacher training? Perhaps you are working in a school or childcare facility as a SNA or room leader? Have you always wanted to teach? Read below about our FREE salaried route to a PGCE with QTS with Engage Education.

Engage Education has a two-phase Train to Teach programme which allows you to work, earn and learn all at the same time. The course is an alternative route to traditional initial teacher training, and offers a postgraduate-level qualification leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), no tuition fees, and the opportunity to earn while you learn.

What does the training entail?

This program will run over two phases. In your first phase, you will work full time in a local school as a member of Support Staff, while receiving online and in-person support from our Partnership and Development team to prepare you for your training programme. This first phase will include CPD on:

Knowledge of The Teachers' Standards
Understanding of The Teachers' Standards
Reflective Summary of Learning linked to The Teachers' Standards
By the end of Phase One, you’ll be ready to start teaching!

Phase Two of the course gives you the essential knowledge and skills to excel in your teaching career. You will work as a teacher while studying for your PGCE and QTS assessment with the National Institute of Teaching and Education (NITE) at Coventry University. You will be paid in line with the national scale for unqualified teachers.

The modules included are:

Behaviour and Classroom Management
Curriculum Delivery and Assessment
Development of The Teachers' Standards
Evidence of practical teaching practice
