You will be training to be a Computing Teacher - this is a great opportunity to train to teach outstanding lessons and therefore help pupils achieve excellent academic results in Computing.
As a Computing teacher trainee, you’ll be helping your pupils discover and harness the universal language of the future.
You’ll benefit from training designed explicitly for the Computing subject, providing you with the tools and skills you need to teach young people. With Ark Teacher Training, you will learn how to teach the basics of programming, algorithms as well as inspiring the next generation of coders and developers!
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 Computing 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!
