The Bracknell Forest Partnership offers  you the opportunity to train to teach in some of the best secondary schools in England.

Our training programme is a one-year school based full-time route into teaching leading to the award of Qualified Teacher Status, with the option to gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Education academic qualification and credits towards a Masters degree.

Reading University WebsiteTwo of our schools will be your placement schools, but more importantly you will be part of a wider community of trainee teachers across all our partnership .  Your training will be carried out in conjunction with the University of Reading.

The aim of all involved in the partnership is to train excellent practitioners who have a positive impact on the learning of pupils.  You will take ownership of your development during your first year and establish the skills to allow you to reflect on your own learning to enable you to continuously improve during the training year and throughout your career.

There are two  training options:

  • The School Direct Training Programme is for high-quality graduates who want to feel part of a school team whilst training. You’ll pay fees but may be eligible for a bursary or a scholarship to support you.
  • The School Direct Training Programme (salaried) is an employment-based route for high-quality experienced graduates with at least three years’ relevant work experience. You will earn a salary while you train.  Please note, for the 2022-23 training year our Partnership will NOT be offering salaried places.

Financial Support is available throughout your training, find out more about the latest offerings that may be available to you by visiting our Bursaries page.
