Excellent staff are key to our success
What is our ‘Teach Hurst’ programme?
One of the keys to our success has been excellent staff. The college has made a point of recruiting and training individuals – who have the potential to become outstanding teachers – straight from university or those who have had initial careers in other areas.
Our pioneering three-year ‘Teach Hurst’ programme is the result of a considerable investment of time and money. The programme is fully-funded and includes sponsorship of PGCE and NQT training, a starting salary of £21,500 per annum, free on-site accommodation (if required) and free meals (term time only).
We are always on the lookout for well-qualified graduates/undergraduates, across a variety of subject areas, to be part of our programme.
In essence our programme consists of:
Year 1 Building classroom experience through observation, team teaching and some whole class teaching on a reduced timetable
Year 2 A fully funded, in-school, PGCE course
Year 3 NQT Year
Throughout this time we offer close and supportive mentorship, and a CPD programme.
