Train to Teach
COVID-19 update: We are still accepting applications for United Teaching and have moved our entire assessment process online to accommodate this. We're also running online introductory sessions for anyone interested in teacher training - you can find out more and sign up here.
United Teaching is the teacher training programme for United Learning.
We offer you the opportunity to train while you teach, so you can get the teaching qualifications you need without going back to university. You can train for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) on its own, or you can go for a PGCE as well, earning 60 Masters-level credits along the way.
Training with United Teaching gives you real teaching exposure in a choice of schools across the country. We will support you with subject specialists and dedicated mentors from over 80 of our schools nationwide.
About the Course
We offer an immersive programme starting with a two-week summer school in August. You will then spend your training year in your host school with additional training one afternoon each week. Assessment will continue throughout the course, based on your classroom experience and achievement measured against the Teaching Standards, while your PGCE study will consist of two academic assignments, assessed by Goldsmiths, University of London.
In your NQT year, you will continue to receive training, mentoring and professional development opportunities. Our NQTs benefit from twilight training sessions, mentor visits and additional subject-specific support from the Prince's Teaching Institute.
