This group of schools is seeking to appoint well-qualified applicants to train as PE teachers through the School Direct PGCE PE with eBacc Programme for the academic year 2018-19. This is a new School Direct programme which allows candidates to train to teach in PE, with some teaching of an eBacc subject alongside.

Working in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire, the schools can offer a high quality and comprehensive training programme. All schools have a proven track record in providing a stimulating and supportive environment for teacher training. Successful applicants will spend most of the week in school, with some time at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield.

Applicants are required to have a good degree in a sports/PE relevant subject, as well as a good A level grade in an eBacc subject. All candidates should have some school experience.
