The Pen Green Initial Teacher Training (ITT) course covers the 3 to 11 age range. All primary trainees are on a programme which trains them to teach ‘The Primary Phase’. Within this phase, Pen Green trainees are on the 3-7 pathway. All trainees are required to spend time (1 day minimum) in the age range before and after the age range they are experiencing in their school based training.
We have two routes to QTS, School Direct PGCE and School Direct Salaried. School Direct means that trainees spend the majority of their training year based in school, working and learning alongside qualified teachers who mentor and support them in school. Academic and pastoral support is also provided by tutors from Pen Green and the University of Hertfordshire. The University of Hertfordshire awards the academic qualifications and accredits the QTS of our trainee teachers.More Details
