Ark Teacher Training is a high-quality professional learning programme delivered by Ark, for Trainee Teachers and Early Career Teachers.
Rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, our training programme offers the perfect blend of theory and practice to ensure trainees from all walks of life have the tools and support they need to become incredible teachers.
As you develop from a trainee to a fully qualified teacher and beyond, you’re positioned to have the biggest impact with Ark Teacher Training: many of our schools are in areas facing social and economic challenges or historic academic underachievement, so with the support of Ark’s vast and vibrant network, you can be sure you’re making a difference from day one.
There may be opportunities outside of our core network and locations, such as in partner schools and wider areas like Southampton.
Ark is a charity that exists to transform the lives of children through education, regardless of their background. While each of our schools has its own distinctive character that reflects the local community, they all draw upon the same principles in support of this shared mission.
With 38 Ark schools in the network and more being added every year, trainees benefit from this growing community from their very first day as they work alongside like-minded people focused on driving change for the better.
