Ever been told you’d make a great teacher?

Looking for a successful and rewarding new career?

Ark Teacher Training (ATT) is a school-based programme offering the perfect mixture of theory and classroom practice to develop you into the best teacher you can be. Because we believe that every child, regardless of their background, deserves to have access to a great education.

We are very proud to have just received our second ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted in all categories! There are only a few ITTs in the UK that can say the same. Ark Teacher Training allows you to train on the job while earning nationally recognised teaching qualifications – a PGCE and Qualified Teacher Status.

You will be based in Ark Alexandra Academy from day one, working as part of our staff team, but you’ll be supported every step of the way with weekly training sessions and a dedicated tutor.
