You will be training to be a Physics Teacher - this is a great opportunity to train to teach outstanding lessons and therefore help pupils achieve excellent academic results in Physics.
As a physics teacher, you have the privilege of unpacking the universe with young people as you expand their knowledge. You’ll be provided with everything you need, from expertise to support, to become a fantastic Physics teacher.
You will not only learn how to support and structure debate in science lessons and set up practical’s but learn how to engage students in science and convey the story of everything from energy to an equation!
Ark is a charity that aims to transform children’s lives through education. In the UK, the strongest predictor of how a child will do at school continues to be what their parents do for a living – but why should this be the accepted status quo? By working in our network at one of our 39 schools, you will be directly making a positive impact on young people’s lives through high-quality teaching and thoughtful consideration of all backgrounds and needs, making educational equity a reality.
Ark Teacher Training (ATT) is a school-based programme offering the perfect mixture of theory and classroom practice to develop you into the best teacher you can be. Because we believe that every child, regardless of their background, deserves to have access to a great education, we work mainly in communities of lower income with a history of academic underachievement. We are very proud to have just received our second ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted in all categories! There are only a few ITTs in the UK that can say the same. Alongside this, our programme is also incredibly supportive and bespoke, as you will see below.
The bursary to teach Physics is £27,000 during your training year (or a £29,000 scholarship) and once qualified you will move onto the qualified teacher pay scale - Ark pay 2.5% above the national average too!
