Train To Teach

Whether you are based in the West or Central Midlands, the Community Academies Trust Institute of Education (CAT IoE) has an opportunity near you. The map below gives an idea of the areas in which we work.

Working in partnership with the University of Derby as a Lead Provider for their school based teacher training programme, we offer placements in secondary and primary schools located in a variety of contexts. Our aim is always to widen the horizons of the young people in our communities.

We believe our provision ensures trainees feel fully prepared for life in the classroom and a career in education. On completion of the course, employment within our trust may be a possibility.

If you have excellent communication skills, a good honours degree and meet all the eligibility criteria, you could be joining our team of beginning teachers as they take their first step on their journey to become a qualified teacher.

" We pride ourselves on our reputation.  The personalised support our trainees receive helps them to become the very best teachers they can be, with many securing positions within our partner schools.  I sincerely believe that training to teach in a school based environment is the best way to learn.  Our subject mentors are outstanding teachers with a proven track record of supporting and training new teachers both whilst they are training and through the early part of 
their careers. "

Alexis Rickus, Director of CAT Institute of Education
