** Initial Teacher Training Event at Croftlands Junior School **


Teachers make young people achieve, more than they ever believed they could achieve. Inspire the doctors, teachers and business leaders of tomorrow.

Change a young person’s life for the better.  Teachers make students curious, question, and criticise. Teachers make the frightened, confident. The uninterested, ambitious. And the gifted… brilliant.


The School Direct training programme is open to top graduates and career changers as well as those that are already working at, or have an existing relationship with, a school and want to take the next step. It offers talented individuals the chance to be part of a teaching team from day one by combining teacher training with on-the-job learning.

We have vacancies now to start training from September 2020 and we would be very interested to hear from you if you are thinking of becoming a teacher, or know someone who is. We’re looking for people who have (or will have) a degree, have a passion for teaching and want to inspire young people to fulfil their potential.

We are holding an information event on Monday 20th April 2020 4-5pm at Croftlands Junior School, Ulverston.  You are welcome to come along at 4pm and have a chat about the exciting primary and secondary teacher training opportunities available. If you are unable to make the event or would like further information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We can also provide you with support and guidance on your application form and offer you school experience if you just want a taster of what teaching could be like.

For further information on what becoming a teacher might involve more generally, you can also visit our Initial Teacher Training Page and www.education.gov.uk/get-into-teaching.

By halting groups of visitors to schools we hope we are demonstrating a duty of care to school staff and pupils as well as the wider communities that they are all part of.
