Train to teach with Oasis
If you are thinking of becoming a teacher, but don't know where you want to train, look no further! Many of our academies work with Schools Direct and Teach First, but we also have two teaching schools within the family!
Oasis Innovation: The Oasis Teaching School (Greater Manchester)
As an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ primary school and National Support School Oasis Academy Limeside has been designated by the DfE as a National Teaching School.
We are passionate about training innovative, enthusiastic and effective teachers. We offer an exciting Primary School Direct training course that allows you to spend considerable time in schools working with children and other teachers, while still gaining a PGCE with QTS. Due to the smaller size of our cohorts, our programme also allows for you to get to know us really well, and for us to tailor our support to your specific developmental needs as you grow in confidence in the classroom.
We work in partnership with The University of Manchester (an outstanding provider of Initial Teacher Training). Throughout the year training is delivered by tutors from The University of Manchester and by outstanding teachers from across our training hub schools.
Our team is committed and promises to provide trainees with:
- A PGCE with Masters credits from the University of Manchester as well as Qualified Teacher Status; high quality school based training within a range of primary schools combined with on campus study and quality assurance from the University of Manchester; and exceptional professional learning opportunities from across our teaching school alliance
- A breadth of continuous professional development and strategic placements to meet personal needs; excellent online professional studies education; and a range of experiences within a nurturing environment, quality assured throughout
- A guaranteed interview for employment as well as the opportunity to go into our NQT recruitment pool. You will also be part of Oasis Innovation National Teaching School Alliance, meaning you will have access to our wide range of training, cutting edge research projects and other professional development opportunities.
Teach Primary: Oasis Academy Warndon (Worcester)
Our Primary programme is focussed on the study of teaching students between the ages of 5 and 11 years in all National Curriculum subjects, with particular emphasis on English, Mathematics, Science and ICT. You will learn the principles of curriculum design, planning and delivery, theories of learning and teaching pedagogy alongside developing practical insights and skills in the effective teaching and assessment of young children.
You will be offered a series of learning experiences linking different perspectives of primary teaching to the development of your professional skills and subject knowledge in the classroom. This will give you the opportunity to select a specialism. You will teach and qualify for the 5 - 11 age range but will also experience short EYFS and KS3 placements as well.
The primary programme here at Oasis Academy Warndon will lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) alongside a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). QTS is awarded by Haybridge Alliance SCITT and involves you gathering evidence against each of the Teacher Standards. Trainees will spend a minimum of 120 days in school working towards the award of QTS. The PGCE is awarded by Birmingham City University (BCU) and involves the completion of assignments that you will prepare throughout the course of the programme.
Teaching is an immensely rewarding career, where you use your skills to inspire young people and give something back to the community. There aren't many careers where you play such a role in other's lives, and get the chance to make a difference to the development of children and young adults.
Competitive Salaries and Benefits
A teacher can earn a competitive salary. You have a generous pension and can receive a bursary of up to £26k while you train.
Career Progressions and Quality of Life
Teaching is a flexible job, if you have a family you get to share their holidays and time much or your work around them outside of standard school hours.
There are numerous progression routes, with responsibilities for subjects, pastoral care, professional development and more, as well as school leadership.
