Teacher Training at Welcombe Hills School

Welcombe School is committed to supporting the training of new teachers coming in to the profession. Working in partnership with the Gateway Alliance and the University of Warwick we provide placements and training opportunities for those training to teach. We offer these through the School Direct teacher training programme within our school.

School Direct is a school-led initial teacher training (ITT) programme that provides a fantastic experience if you want to train and learn ‘on the job’.

You’ll be part of our school based teaching team from the very start, receiving intensive support from experienced teachers and mentors. You will access an outstanding academic programme of study at the University of Warwick which will support you to understand the

theory behind teaching whilst developing and practicing your skills in school.

We can also provide short term experience placements for those considering teaching as a career.
