We’re committed to supporting the next generation of teachers through our Star Teachers programme, which offers 3 routes into teaching including our Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship.
The Star Institute Postgraduate Teacher Apprenticeship is a twelve-month programme that runs from September to September and leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) whilst remaining in paid employment in school. Apprentices can specialise in primary teaching or a specific subject at secondary level. Our blended learning approach combines in-school experience, centre-based training and online tuition.
Here are some examples of our apprentices’ stories.
|Aysha’s experience as a learning mentor at The Olive School, Blackburn inspired her to gain her Qualified Teacher Status. Our Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship has enables Aysha to continue to work in a school she loves, while gaining the skills, training and qualification to become a primary teacher.|
|Our teaching apprenticeship has given Sue the perfect opportunity to retrain as a teacher. The former architect decided to achieve her Qualified Teacher Status after realising how much she loved working with children while working as a teaching assistant.|
|For Sara, the training she received through her Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship has been second to none. The hands-on experience she gained leading her own class, while receiving structured feedback and training, has been invaluable.|
|Rebecca has dreamt of becoming a teacher for more than ten years. She loves working in the classroom in her role as a teaching assistant, but when her school advertised a teaching apprenticeship with Star Institute she jumped at the chance to finally realise her dream.|
|Holly’s teaching apprenticeship with Star Institute enabled her to put her training into practice in the classroom. She has seen the benefits first-hand and she has become a more confident professional as a result.|
