aspire_logoAre you interested in training to be a teacher? Then why not train with us?!

Kings Furlong Junior School is a School Direct partner in Aspire Teaching School Alliance. The Alliance is currently recruiting trainee teachers for the School Direct Programme 2017-18.

Aspire Teaching School Alliance was formed in November 2014. Overton CE Primary School is a National Teaching School and the lead school of the alliance. Aspire’s vision is the pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning.

Aspire Teaching School Alliance is committed to the recruitment and retention of high quality teachers in order to meet the needs of our locality.  We have a strong partnership of schools in North Hampshire and our diverse alliance of schools has been involved in delivering high quality teacher-training for many years.  We are now able to offer a route into teaching through our School Direct Programme.

School Direct

School Direct is a school-led teacher training programme.  School Direct courses are designed by a group of schools in partnership with a university. A School Direct course lasts a year and trainee teachers will train in at least two schools.

This course offers a brilliant option if trainees want to train and learn ‘on the job’. Trainees will be part of a team from the very start, receiving intensive support from experienced teachers and mentors.

If you are interested in training to become a teacher, please speak to Mr Applegate, or visit the Aspire website at for more information. Thank you!

Don’t forget that you can get school experience with Kings Furlong Juniors or another one of the schools listed above. Some school experience is necessary to apply for the programme. Again, please speak to Mr Applegate about this. You can also find out more here (requires free registration).
