It is our longstanding goal to develop a workforce which contains a full range of excellent secondary school teachers to meet the most pressing needs in the Tees Valley region. 

Our secondary teacher training programmes enable trainees to qualify as secondary school teachers in the 11-16 age range. 

All secondary teaching trainees will undertake in-school experiences and training days, receive high-quality subject knowledge training and have the chance to listen to specialist speakers and observe lessons in an outstanding network of schools.

We offer opportunities for coaching and mentoring, to achieve formal accreditation, and for school-based research which can be shared within the wider school system.

There are also teaching opportunities to work in schools with a sixth form, so you are able to extend your knowledge, skills, and experience further with an older age group of students if you wish.
