ABOUT BROMLEY SCHOOLS’ COLLEGIATE
“Excellence through Experience”
Established in 1993 to train teachers in local schools, Bromley Schools' Collegiate offers a School Centred Initial Teacher Training course for post-graduates who wish to teach in Primary and Secondary Schools. The Collegiate boasts high employability and retentions rates that demonstrate the quality of the training provided. Judged outstanding in 2015 for both Primary and Secondary teacher training, Bromley Schools’ Collegiate is one of the leading teacher training providers in the country.
There are various routes into teaching, which Hayes School supports through the Bromley Schools’ Collegiate, in which we play an active role.
School Direct (Tuition Fee)
Applicants may apply for a training placement through the School Direct Training Programme. This is a one-year full time course with training (in two placements) based entirely in the one of the member schools of the Bromley Schools’ Collegiate. It is totally school-based. Trainees each have their own experienced subject teacher who is assigned as their individual mentor. Mentors and trainees are further supported by subject lead mentors across the Collegiate and the school's Senior Mentor, Rose Nunn.
School Direct (Salaried)
The School Direct (Salaried) programme is an employment-based route which offers a way to qualify as a teacher while working. Bromley Schools’ Collegiate is a Designated Recommending Body, however the trainee is employed by the school. The Senior Mentor is responsible for the training of the SDS trainees. The trainee will follow an individual training programme leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
This programme often suits people who want to change to a teaching career and need to earn a salary while they train. Normally, the programme is for one year. If a graduate already has considerable teaching experience, it may be possible to gain Qualified Teacher Status in less time. Programmes are typically three terms, but some may be eligible for training on a one or two-term programme.
The Senior Mentor and Subject Mentors will undertake an assessment of training needs and build training programmes tailored to those needs. Training could include guidance on classroom techniques; ways of preparing lessons; observing other teachers; attending a core-training programme and practising IT skills. Experienced teachers monitor, assess and record progress.
