Develop your skills and experience in teaching.

Here at Newington Green, in partnership with Rotherfield, our sister school, we have developed routes to become a teacher!

If you are a graduate hoping to get some experience before applying for Schools Direct, PGCE or Teacher Apprenticeship have a look at our bespoke programme: Aspiring Teachers Programme – Flyer – Feb 2018


Aspiring Teacher Programme

The Aspiring Teachers Programme is designed to support graduates who are looking to develop their experience and skills in education, prior to teacher training. Successful applicants will beemployed by Newington Green or Rotherfield for a year’s paid work experience. During the year, they will be assigned a mentor and carry out a range of tasks within school, designed to prepare them for a career in teaching. The programme will prepare candidates for potential opportunities to enter the school’s Teacher Apprenticeship scheme, Schools Direct or PGCE routes.

Teacher Apprentice programme

At Newington Green and Rotherfield we want to support our staff in professional development, and grow our own teachers. We wish to support staff who want to train as class teachers in this way, whilst maintaining high standards and securing school improvement.  This programme arises from our desire to balance individual development and school improvement, and applies to staff who wish to gain QTS to teach all subjects under the national curriculum as class teachers.


For more information see our policy here: NG RF Teacher Apprentice Policy 2018
