The Education and Training Foundation has commissioned our team at Skills and Education Group to deliver an innovative teacher training programme, SET for Teaching Success. The programme will recruit, train and mentor Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) graduates and/or those with significant industry experience who are new to teaching. Existing provider staff may also participate, including work-based assessors and technicians.
Two “hubs” across the country will recruit trainees. Blackburn College is delivering the programme across the North, and Skills and Education Group in the Midlands and South. Hub funding will be provided for the recruitment, training, coaching and mentoring of learners for the duration of the programme.
Skills and Education Group will also work in partnership with the Nottingham Institute of Education at Nottingham Trent University to deliver the PCET PGCE. Any providers offering their own post-compulsory teacher training course are welcome to participate in the programme, subject to the course meeting approved standards.
