Harris Academy Chafford Hundred announces applications are open for new teacher training programme

  • The applications system for School Direct teacher training places for September 2013 is now open
  • The School Direct Training programme (salaried) is open to graduates with three or more years’ career experience
  • The School Direct Training programme is available to all other graduates and offers tax-free bursaries of up to £20,000 for candidates with top degrees in priority subjects

Harris Academy Chafford Hundred is offering School Direct and is calling for applications from the most able graduates in the region in the following subjects:  Chemistry, Computer Science, English, History, Maths, Modern Foreign Languages (French, German, and Spanish) as well as Physics.

This new path into teaching is a great new way to gain the qualifications and practical skills you need to become a teacher.  It enables those who have just finished a degree, or have been working in a career for many years to combine teacher training with learning on the job.

Harris Academy Chafford Hundred was deemed an Outstanding school in every area in its last Ofsted inspection (November 2011).  Also in 2011 the SSAT awarded the school the Outstanding Progress, Outstanding Attainment and Outstanding Improvement Awards.  In September 2012 the new Sixth Form building was opened by Lord Harris.  Student behaviour is superb and there are a multitude of CPD opportunities for staff.

Harris Academy Chafford Hundred is a school for the future and is the perfect place to begin your teaching career.  Search “Get into teaching” online or call 0800 389 2500 for more information.
