At Barnton we train graduate TAs, who already have a wealth of experience in a primary setting, and are ready to gain QTS.
As a TES Global hub we provided the in-school experience and support of a mentor, whilst TES provide a pathway tutor and on-line programme, which prepares trainees to meet the Teachers’ Standards, and provides opportunity to be independently assessed and awarded QTS
Emma works for both Barnton Community Nursery and Primary School, as a senior lead teacher and TES Global, as a Pathway Tutor. Working together with TES Global is empowering for both staff and school. It enables us to achieve goals which otherwise would not be possible. She supports throughout the programme, both in school and online. Emma is experienced in nurturing new teachers towards QTS and will meet regularly, observe and give feedback on progress.
Places are within our Teaching Alliance, and placements will be at one of the following schools:
