How much of the programme is school-based?

The AET Teacher Training course is a school based programme, which means the entirety of your training year takes place in one of our amazing, vibrant schools – not a lecture theatre in sight!

What qualifications will I gain?

At the end of the training year, you will gain QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) and a PGCE. 

What are the AET Teacher Training schools like?

We have 57 schools across five locations in the UK: London, Essex, the South West, West Midlands and Yorkshire & Humber (the North). Many of our schools are in areas facing social and economic challenges or historic academic underachievement, so you can be sure you’re making a difference from your very first day of training.

Can I choose the school I'm placed in?

Let us know the location you’d like to teach in on your application. You’ll also be able to let us know if you have any preference to the school you’ll be place in. Typically, our recruitment team will work with you to find a school that’s the perfect fit for you!

What are the ages of the pupils I’ll be teaching?

Trainees in primary schools will work with children aged between 5-11 years, and those training in secondary schools will be teaching pupils between 11-18 years.

I want hands-on experience. Do I get to teach in a classroom?

Yes! Our teacher training is a school based programme, meaning that your training will be in a school from your very first day of term. You’ll get to watch your pupils grow throughout the whole academic year.
