Working in partnership with York St John University as York’s original School Direct provider, we have supported 112 training teachers so far to secure their first teaching posts. We offer an extensive range of CPD opportunities to help you learn, develop and shape your career during your PGCE year and beyond.
Recruiting for our 2022-23 training cohort, our newest cohort will be the 10th to choose to start their teaching journey through this immersive, school-centred route into teaching. Between 2018 and 2021, approximately one third of our training teachers have gone on to secure teaching roles within our Hope Sentamu Learning Trust schools while many of our partner schools have also employed our training teachers based on their performance during their placements.
Hope Sentamu Learning Trust offer training to help you start your teaching career after your PGCE year, such as job applications advice and mock interviews, as well as preparing you for your ECT year by working with Ambition Institute on Early Career provision. Equally, our partners at York St John University continue to support you after your training year with a dedicated ECT service.
Our School Direct PGCE programme develops our Hope Sentamu Learning Trust student teachers into competent and confident professionals as they begin their NQT years. They learn that intellectual endeavour, criticality and personal reflection are key to developing outstanding teaching practice during the early stages of their teaching careers.
At York St John University, we recognise, and celebrate, the fact that many of our schools have very robust, highly effective NQT induction programmes. Our aim is to complement the support being offered in the school, by the Local Authority and Hope Sentamu Learning Trust and to be instrumental in creating highly-skilled, confident and resilient teachers of the future. We offer regular webinars on a range of topics, a dedicated NQT website containing a wealth of resources, frequent communication with our NQTs in the form of newsletters, and also bespoke support both for those in employment and those seeking their first teaching position.
