Teacher Training

If you are considering a career in teaching we would be delighted to hear from you. Classroom experience can help you to decide whether teaching is right for you, it will also strengthen your application and prepare you for potential interviews. If you are thinking about teaching as a career and would like to get some more experience in a school we are able to support with opportunities to visit the school and to complete a short observation placement.

To arrange this please contact Mrs Brown via 01234 290200.

We gather feedback from teachers that have trained with us to ensure that we continue to provide outstanding training opportunities for those undertaking their Initial Teacher Training. 100% of those who have completed a teacher training placement with us would recommend Mark Rutherford School as a placement school.
