Thinking of a career change? Why not train to be a teacher at Bolingbroke?

Learning to teach at Bolingbroke offers the path into a fascinating, challenging and extremely rewarding career

Do you sometimes wonder whether there must be more to life than the boring 9 – 5, and dream of doing something more meaningful and rewarding?

Then why don’t you consider teaching? At Bolingbroke Academy you can train on the job to be a teacher, working alongside Ark Teacher Training, our outstanding school based programme, which is designed to train, support and develop new teachers in our schools every year.

You’ll be thrown in at the deep end from day one, as part of our staff team but provided with plenty of support every step of the way with weekly training sessions and a dedicated tutor, helping you to gain nationally recognized teaching qualifications at the same time.

Every person who graduates from the one year Ark Teacher Training programme and meets all teaching standards will gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) - a nationally recognised teaching qualification allowing you to teach in other schools.

You will also receive an internationally recognised and respected teaching qualification from Goldsmiths, University of London - a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).

With 34 schools in four regions across the UK and a dedicated central team, so whatever your career aspirations are, there are plenty of opportunities within our organization, an the chance to progress quickly.

To qualify for a place, you will need an undergraduate degree in a related subject, and ideally hold at least a B in A level. You will also need a C grade and above in Maths and English Language, and while relevant experience is advantageous it is not vital.

While graduates of any subject are welcome to apply we are particularly interested in hearing from those with science degrees (notably Physics and Chemistry), as well as Maths and Languagues.
