The North East Partnership (NEP) SCITT, a leading physical education teacher training provider, has enlisted the support of education recruitment specialist Vision for Education, to help prepare their students for the world of teaching.
Vision for Education’s Newcastle branch will support the primary and secondary trainees at the Ofsted outstanding-rated SCITT, to secure a permanent role once they have qualified.
Experienced recruitment consultants will offer the trainees useful job search and application advice and help with personal statement writing and interview techniques.
The trainee teachers will also be able to access free training courses through Vision for Education’s continuing professional development (CPD) programme for teaching staff, to help enhance their skills and keep them up-to-date with the latest developments in education.
Vision for Education will guarantee any trainees who don’t manage to secure a permanent role immediately regular supply work after they graduate. They will also offer applicants applying for a place on the prestigious teacher training programme temporary work, to enable them to gain practical work experience before their course starts.
Gareth Gaston, Vision for Education’s Secondary Manager at the Newcastle branch, said: "NEP SCITT is the largest physical education teacher training provider in the North East and one of the largest in the country, so we are thrilled to get the opportunity to work exclusively with them. Our employability skills training will help the new teachers stand out from other applicants and give them the best possible chance of securing the job they want.”
Helen Ostell, Programme Leader at NEP SCITT, said: “We are delighted to be working with Vision for Education to develop our trainees’ employability skills and help them to secure permanent teaching roles. All of our secondary trainees are qualified to teach physical education with a core subject and all our primary trainees are qualified as primary teachers with a physical education specialism.”
