Life at Ark Teacher Training for graduates

Ark Teacher Training is part of Ark, an international education charity which aims to give every young person a great education and real choices in life.

Ark Teacher Training exists to ensure all children, regardless of their background, have access to a high-quality education. We do this by recruiting bright, motivated graduates and training them to become great teachers in a school in our network.

Ark Teacher Training is a two-year school based training programme. As a School Direct programme, you'll be based in the classroom from day one, but you won't be thrown in at the deep end. You'll receive 500 hours of face-to-face training, focusing on both theory and practice.

You'll be based in one of over 40 schools in your choice of four regions in the UK; Birmingham, Hastings, London and Portsmouth. There are a whole host of teaching options for you, from primary to physics, from music to maths.

In January 2017, our programme was rated as 'outstanding' in all areas by Ofsted.
