Fee paying courses

Teach in Kent offers a classroom-based training route in partnership with the Tes Institute who have a reputation for innovative online learning materials which offer great flexibility for your learning. Our blended learning programme combines school-based training, online learning sessions, experienced subject specialists as mentors and high quality professional studies training sessions. During your training, you will be treated as a member of staff at the school and will attend staff meetings and development sessions to give you the true teacher experience whilst learning from the outstanding colleagues around you.

You will build up your teaching slowly so you won't be dropped in the deep end. To start with you, you will only observe lesson and then you will start to increase how much teaching you lead.

Your mentor will be central to your development and so we have committed to their training. Their careful support is also
complimented by your Pathway Tutor from the TES Institute through their visits each half-term.
