Teacher Training

As part of Creative Education Trust, Weavers Academy is dedicated to providing teacher training which promotes creative, integrated and pro-active thinking, ready for the challenges of the 21st Century. Creative Education Trust is committed to offering trainee teachers the best opportunities to grow and learn surrounded by supportive and experienced colleagues.

School Direct is one of the teacher training routes we offer at Weavers Academy. Our School Direct programme is partnered with the Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ 

University of Warwick, Centre for Teacher Education (placed 6th UK University in the Guardian University Guide 2022). The qualification gained on our School Direct programme is the same University of Warwick, Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) as that gained by students on the more traditional University-led teacher training programme.

The School Direct programme allows potential trainees to apply directly to Weavers Academy for their teacher training. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to gain valuable experience in our school in advance of the course start date.

Take a look at the courses which currently have availability.

Government bursary funding is available to help people who wish to train in some subjects. You will find more information about fees and funding at the Get Into Teaching website.

If you already have 2 years of classroom experience (such as Teaching Assistants or Cover Supervisors) you may wish to consider a post graduate teaching apprenticeship. Teaching apprentices do not pay fees to study and earn a salary whilst developing their teaching skills in the classroom. Apprentices split their time between school and University with at least 20% of their time being spent on study.
