The Training

We will be delivering this programme in partnership with our colleagues at Liverpool Hope University. We have vacancies for the academic year 2017-18 to train teachers in the Primary age phase. Approximately half the training will take place in school and half at Liverpool Hope University. Your university training will give you the theory behind the many aspects of successful teaching which you will then be able to implement during your time in school.


Many people choose the School Direct route of teacher training, because they gain first-hand experience of teaching over a full academic year. The majority of the school based experience will be at Greenbank Primary, but there will also be a half term placement in another Liverpool school during the Spring Term.


During your year of training you will have a school based mentor who will guide, support and challenge you, to enable you to become an outstanding teacher. In addition to the Initial Professional Development delivered by Liverpool Hope University, we will provide bespoke training in school to meet your professional training needs.
