Why choose the Tidal Teaching School Alliance School Direct Programme?
Tidal Teaching School is an alliance of partners from Kingston Upon Hull and the East Riding. We are secondary, primary and special schools, a pupil referral unit, higher education institutes, educational consultants and educational agencies.
Our Initial Teacher Training offer allows trainees the opportunity to train to become a teacher in a partnership of exceptional schools in Hull and the East Riding. Our programme is based around school experience with training delivered at lead schools or at the University of Hull.
Where teaching posts across the alliance arise, outstanding newly qualified teachers have a very strong chance of gaining immediate employment. Schools in our partnership range from ethnically diverse and inner city, to rural and coastal towns. However, they all share a common attribute in that they offer outstanding professional experience for graduates new to teaching.
“The Tidal Teaching School Alliance has provided me with excellent teaching experience and training. The schools within the alliance have offered continuous support and the opportunity to work alongside other students and experienced teachers throughout the course.
The school direct route was my preferred route into teacher training, as it allows students to be immersed into the school environment and to be part of the school’s team.
Within Tidal, this has meant being involved in additional training in beneficial areas such as behaviour management, the new curriculum and assessment. Being part of an alliance also provided me with brilliant employment opportunities, as I secured a job within my alternative placement school.
Overall, as a result of my training with Tidal, I now feel confident and prepared to teach my own class within my NQT year.”
