Train as a Physics Teacher at Dulwich College
We are looking to recruit both career changers and recent graduates to train as physics teachers.
Dulwich College is the South London Hub of the National Maths & Physics SCITT, a new school centred teacher training programme that partners the state and independent school sectors and provides subject specific physics training. Trainees complete a year's teacher training and are awarded both qualified teacher status (QTS) and a PGCE. Trainees undertake a main school placement at either Dulwich College or one of our partner schools (both state and independent) across London. They are assigned a mentor in their host school and attend a full day's formal training every Wednesday at Dulwich College, designed and delivered by leading physics practitioners. The course is highly subject specialised: trainees receive 14.5 days of physics specific training over the year. In the second or third school term, trainees undertake a six-week second placement at a contrasting school.
Trainees are awarded a tax-free £24,000 government bursary for the training year. There are also more generous scholarships available from the Institute of Physics (IOP), which many of our current trainees have successfully applied for. For trainees who left education some time ago, there are subject knowledge enhancement courses of various lengths available, for which trainees receive payment for completing.
Entry requirements for candidates are British citizenship and a first- or second-class bachelor’s degree in a relevant subject, in addition to a love of their subject and a desire to work with young people.
Online taster sessions (comprising a full introduction to our course, discussion of life as a teacher and video clips of classroom teaching and our SCITT training sessions) can be booked at https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/school-experience or by contacting Dr Rob Bastin at BastinRJ@dulwich.org.uk. Applications can be submitted either via UCAS or at https://www.gov.uk/apply-for-teacher-training between now and July 2021. The course start date is September 2021.
