PERSHORE HIGH SCHOOL INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING
Pershore High School has extensive experience in ITT, having been a Training School for five years, and recently received an extremely positive Ofsted Inspection Report in July 2013. We provide a supportive environment in a dynamic and exciting fully comprehensive school, giving opportunities to widen professional experience inside and outside the classroom. Trainees will be part of successful and high achieving departments, with a wealth of experience to draw from. Trainees will have a comprehensive Professional Programme of training to follow and be part of a large contingent of fellow trainees from other routes into teaching. Evaluation feedback from ITT trainees is always positive with 100% of trainees awarding the provision as good or better. This, alongside department support, will give you the best possible start to your new career.
Pershore High School’s long association with Initial Teacher Training (ITT) have seen us develop links with the University of Worcester, University of Gloucester, Open University, Newman College and Robert Owen Consortium. We regularly take trainees in all departments of the school, the most recent department to take trainees for the first time being Psychology. We also support trainees who follow the SEN pathway with the University of Worcester and thus provide a good opportunity for all to develop their understanding of SEN, having a well-established Learning Resource Centre as well as an Autism Base.
The Professional Programme is run by the Training Manager and prepares trainees for life in school. Experienced staff and senior teachers contribute to the training which complements that offered at the HEI establishments. It covers topics such as Lesson Planning, Assessment for Learning, Behaviour for Learning and Safeguarding.
Trainees are considered members of staff by the school and are expected to demonstrate the professional behaviour and appearance expected of fully qualified staff.
We are offering training in Music and Science (Physics or Chemistry) from September 2016. Anyone interested should contact the school for a tour and information before application.
The application process should be through UCAS Teacher Training. We are partnered with the University of Worcester (Science) and Birmingham City University (Music) for this route into teaching.
