Become A Teacher

Train to be a teacher with us in Lincoln and get the benefit of group learning and support across a large network of outstanding schools.

Lincolnshire Process

Apply to teach in September 2019 from October 2nd!

The provider code is 277 (Equate Teaching School Alliance/Witham St Hughs) and course code for salaried courses is 2KQY and fee paying courses 2PKD.  Once you have submitted your application via UCAS, we can set a date to interview you for the course to begin your training in September 2020 . The following link will take you to a flow chart with further information on how to apply via UCAS. UCAS is to open on Tuesday 8th October 2019.

If you have a degree, good GCSEs in maths and English and the passion and energy to shape the lives of young people in Lincolnshire, then we want to hear from you.

With our school-based training, you will spend most of your training year in a school, learning on the job first-hand, supported each step of the way by a personal in-school mentor.  The rest of the time will be spent with other trainees on group training days or attending sessions with your tutor at the University of Lincoln. By the end of the year, you will be fully ready to move into the classroom as a fully qualified teacher.

L.E.A.D. Equate Teaching School Alliance is working in partnership with Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance SCITT and four other Lead Schools to provide places for school-based teacher training for September 2019.  This means you’ll get access to the highest quality facilitators and tutors and get to visit and experience a range of different schools during your year and be part of a close and friendly cohort of trainees across Lincolnshire.

We’re running a series of briefing sessions across Lincolnshire where you can drop in to talk to members of the team and have all your questions answered.  Download our flyer for more information.

You can find out more about LTSA SCITT, their training structure, curriculum and funding models on their website here.
