Trainee teachers can now apply to work at one of the most prestigious private schools in the country.

Oundle School is one of the first independent schools to take on the new HMC Teacher Training programme (HMCTT) and plans to offer positions in a number of subjects from September, 2015.

Within the scheme, training and induction will take place “on the job” in a two-year salaried post (with a pupil age of 11 plus or 13 plus, depending on the school) and lead to a PGCE qualification.

Headmaster, Charles Bush said: “This scheme is exciting and will focus the minds of potential new teachers to find posts in independent schools, to be trained extremely well, and to be launched on a teaching career.” 

Employer schools will place trainees on a PGCE course, provided in most cases by the University of Buckingham, and trainees will complete their PGCE within the first year.
