The Teaching Apprenticeship Programme (TAP) can provide you with the opportunity to gain Qualified Teacher Status within a school community.

This apprenticeship uses a practical, hands-on approach, where regardless of your experience working with young people you can benefit from quality training, valuable experience and support from qualified teachers throughout your year as a Trainee Teacher. STEM subjects are highly appealing to schools looking for trainee teachers as they receive greater funding.
This programme would involve you working in a secondary school from the beginning, aided and assessed by in-house mentors and a visiting tutor and building up to teaching classes, up to 80% of your timetable in your final terms, and making lesson plans. You will progress at a pace that suits you - allowing you to develop and grow as a teacher and build your confidence whilst being supported along the way.
