Train to Teach With Invictus

Have you recently graduated, about to graduate or feel that you need a career change….?

If so, teaching could be the career for you. It is one of – if not the most- rewarding professions, where you can transform young people’s lives, regardless of their background. 

As a teacher, you can use your subject knowledge and passion for teaching to help students become enthusiastic about learning and studying. It could be your lessons that help to shape a young person’s future and the career path that they eventually choose.

To become a qualified teacher in state-maintained schools across the UK, prospective trainees will need to undertake Initial Teacher Training (ITT) or Initial Teacher Education (ITE). Entry is generally competitive, but less so for shortage subjects such as Maths, Physics and Languages. Completion of an ITT course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in England and Wales.

Invictus schools work in collaboration with Teach First SCITT and Haybridge SCITT to offer full time (1 year) secondary and primary Initial Teacher Training programmes.

Once qualified, there are many opportunities for good teachers to climb the career ladder and find employment. The starting salary is £30,000 in 2023. 

Courses We Offer 

With over 15 subjects to choose from, we have a course for all new trainee teachers
