Train to Teach at King's High

Teach whilst training

King's High School welcomes applications from teachers who would like to teach whilst training for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). We run a comprehensive programme for dedicated graduates who are passionate about their subject.

Warwick Independent Schools Foundation welcomes highly-skilled graduates who would like to train for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) whilst employed by the school. This scheme is available to those who wish to apply for advertised vacancies but who do not already possess a teaching qualification. The course is likely to take two years to complete but this could be reduced for candidates with relevant experience. After successful completion of the first year, trainees will be invited to spend four weeks in one of our partner schools before completing the QTS (assessment only) in their second year.

This route into teaching is an excellent way to develop your craft whilst being a fully salaried member of staff. There is extensive internal training and the opportunity to reflect on your professional practice with qualified mentors and other trainees.

Benefits of Training to Teach at King's High School:

  • Subject expertise and pedagogical training offered by dedicated school mentors
  • An appropriate timetable
  • A fully-salaried post

Can I visit the school before I complete my application?

We would be delighted to hear from anyone who would like to see the school in action ahead of an application.

To be eligible, you will need the following:

  • A UK undergraduate degree or recognised equivalent qualification at first or second class level
  • A standard equivalent to a grade C in the GCSE examinations in English and mathematics, or equivalent
