Future Teacher Programme

Grow your own teachers

Recruiting and retaining teaching staff is becoming more complex. The number of people entering the profession is decreasing, while the number of teachers leaving has increased. 

Teaching Personnel’s Future Teacher Programme helps schools take control of their long-term teacher recruitment strategy and reverse this trend. We can help you to grow your own teachers.

What other schools say about the Future Teacher Programme 

"We have been absolutely delighted with the Future Teachers we have recruited through Teaching Personnel. We have found the individuals to be well prepared to take on their interim role in school and keen to learn in the year prior to the start of their Initial Teacher Training. We have been fortunate to gain highly effective Learning support assistants for a year and then in turn been able to offer the opportunity of training through the Benfleet and Thundersley Teaching Alliance to committed future teachers. A perfect fit. Also, we need two more future teachers for September. We are taking Daisy and Jessica on for teacher training in September."

Emma Dawson, Headteacher, Thundersley Primary School.

The Future

The Future Teacher Programme provides a fully flexible recruitment solution for schools. Some schools and MATs take the graduates on contract, a School Centred Initial Teacher Training programme, before placing them into a full-time ECT role within the MAT.  Other schools and MATs use the programme to find promising graduates and help them independently find places on ITT programmes. 

Teaching Personnel will build a version of the Future Teacher Programme that works for your school.

Book your Future Teacher meeting to discuss the programme and how it could work for you.

It has been great working with Caroline to connect students and graduates with the Future Teacher Programme.  As a Careers Adviser I see many students who are interested in teaching but want to gain some experience and confidence in a classroom environment before committing to Teacher Training.  The Future Teacher programme is ideal for this. 
Students get to gain experience in a structured and supported way to enable them to make informed choices about whether teaching is for them and what to expect. The programme enables them to reflect on their school experience in applications to teacher training, thereby providing stronger candidates for teacher training providers.  And the schools get to benefit form the talent and enthusiasm that our students can bring to the school.  So many positives!
