School Experience Morning

Want to see the school, watch some lessons and find out a little more about what's involved? 

Teachers and leaders at one or more of our lead schools host a number of visits or ‘open classrooms’ with a focus on a particular subject, key stage or aspect of school improvement. These sessions can be tailored to suit the requirements of those attending. Professional discussions and opportunities for reflection are integrated.

Please email us at teachingschool@cvms.co.uk for details of our next School Experience morning. Coffee and croissants included!

Next date: Monday 14 October

Teacher Training at the Vaughan

Our teacher training is conducted via the DfE School Direct programme and e-Qualitas. We also work closely with a variety of primary and secondary schools and universities across London.

The School Direct pathway into teaching offers you the opportunity of early hands on experience in the classroom and to be mentored by experienced teaching practitioners from the outset.

School Direct

  • A salaried or unsalaried (tuition fee) role where you train whilst teaching in a school.
  • Trainees are assigned an experienced subject mentor who takes the lead in providing coaching and guidance; this includes a weekly meeting and ongoing professional training sessions. The School’s Professional Development Tutors will also assist in this process.
  • Trainees would begin with a reduced teaching timetable which gradually builds throughout the one-year programme.
  • This programme also includes extended placements in contrasting schools in order to give a greater depth and scope to the training programme.

Requirements

School Direct (tuition fee) places are for applicants who will be students, and charged a tuition fee. Students may be able to obtain a student loan of up to £6,000, and may be eligible for a bursary.

Further information on both the salaried and unsalaried School Direct programme is available on the DfE School Direct portal and from e-Qualitas.

Our commitment to your professional development

  • Trainee teachers will be provided with a departmental mentor, professional development tutor as well as a tutor from eQualitas
  • A weekly programme of training sessions designed specifically for trainee teachers delivered by outstanding practitioners. These training sessions would work through the professional standards on weekly basis.
  • Trainee teachers will be provided with five days professional development at e-Qualitas.
  • Enrolment on the whole School’s professional development INSET programme. This would include five days of designated continuing professional development each year.
  • An opportunity to regularly observe experienced teachers in lessons across subject areas.
  • Access to extensive online resources.
  • A programme overseen by the Professional Development Tutors who will work closely with you and the mentors to ensure you receive the bespoke training and support you need.
  • Opportunities to visit and train in other schools with whom we closely work.

How to Apply

Candidates are strongly encouraged to attend our planned open evenings where you will have an opportunity to visit the School and meet those who will lead your professional training. Please indicate a week in advance via emailing us at teachingschool@cvms.co.uk with the date of the open evening you would like to attend.
