Could you lead our teacher training across a group of secondary schools, helping us build a truly world class teacher development programme?

Ark Teacher Training

Launched in 2013, Ark Teacher Training is a programme for committed graduates and career changers who aim to become great teachers. Trainees spend one year in an Ark school - becoming a great teacher while learning on the job. With the support of an inspirational group of tutors, coaches and educational experts, the trainees have all the tools they need to perfect their craft. We understand the importance that the first few years of teaching have on a teacher’s future, so that’s why the programme also supports trainees for the following two years through our NQT and NQT+ schemes. 

Ark Teacher Training was judged ‘Outstanding’ in all areas by Ofsted in January 2017.
