Interested in becoming a teacher?

If you are interested in entering a career in teaching we can provide extensive experience of training prospective new entrants to the teaching profession.  We aim to offer new trainees a highly supportive and well organised training and induction programme which will provide them with the best possible experience in their initial year of teaching.

Our involvement in SUPA Salisbury & School Direct
St Joseph’s School involved in a partnership with other local schools and the University of Southampton in providing non-salaried School Direct teacher training placements. We are involved in the SUPA (Southampton University Partnership Alliance) Salisbury alliance and offer training in a wide variety of subjects each year.

Course Structure
This training programme is similar in structure to the provider-led PGCE course at the University. The main difference will be the attachment each trainee will make with their home school which will involve an initial three weeks of induction and a guaranteed second placement. The content of the training year is broken down as follows:

Term 1
In September trainees will spend approximately three weeks following an induction programme in their home school. This should afford opportunities to visit local primary schools and gain 6th Form experience, as well as gaining an understanding of the systems and functions of the home school. Trainees will then attend approximately two weeks initial training in the University. This will be followed by the rest of the term in their second placement school as well as attending University training days.

Terms 2 and 3
In January, trainees will attend the University for further training for approximately two weeks and will then begin their teaching placement in their home school. They will remain there until the end of June whilst they complete a personalised programme.

During this time, trainees will return to the University from time to time for regular training days.
