Teacher Training Programme (Teach Hurst)
Turning talent into teachers
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 four-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 ECT training, a starting salary of £23,760 per annum (currently under review), 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, knowledge and pedagogy through observation and class teaching on a reduced timetable.
Year 2 A fully funded, in-school, PGCE course provided by Sussex University. Increased teaching load and further responsibility.
Year 3 Early Career Teacher (ECT), greater autonomy, 10% reduction in teaching load
Year 4 Early Career Teacher (ECT), 5% reduction in teaching load.
Throughout this time we offer close and supportive mentorship, and a CPD programme.

Although we are happy to employ people with the right to work in the UK, we are not able to sponsor visa applications.
