05.11.2015 Parent & Carer Training Opportunity

Are you interested in training to become a primary or secondary school teacher?

  1. Our school is part of a growing number of schools leading the way for more school-led teacher training.  

    This is really important to us because it means we can choose the very best talent and develop them into teachers.  Being able to choose who we train as teachers helps us in delivering the best outcomes for the pupils at Venerable Bede Church of England Academy.

    We’d love you to come in and have a chat with us about the exciting teacher training opportunities available. Our Teaching School Manager – Colleen Miller can be contacted on email or if you would like to attend one of our school experience days, please visit our website and book your place
