About Us

At United Teaching, we don’t just train you to teach – we invest in your potential as a future educational leader. We will equip you with the skills and knowledge to become a senior teacher, with the possibility of securing leadership roles in a short space of time. And the good news is, you can start straight away – learning on the job and refining your technique as you go.

You’ll be working at one of 15 United Learning schools in the North West, supported by a network of over 3,500 teachers across the country. You can train for Qualified Teacher Status, or go for a PGCE too, accredited by Goldsmiths, University of London. Placed in a classroom environment, you’ll get all the hands-on experience you could possibly need to excel in your studies.

The course begins with an initial summer school to ground you in the principles of teaching and equip you for the start of the academic year. From September, you’ll be teaching a reduced timetable and attending weekly training sessions to develop your practice. If you choose to complete your PGCE, you will also produce two academic assignments that will be assessed by Goldsmiths. You’ll have plenty of support along the way, from professional and subject mentors who will look after you and provide all the advice and guidance you need.

In your second year, you’ll continue to receive training, mentoring and professional development opportunities as part of our NQT programme. You’ll be invited to twilight training sessions led by educational experts, on key topics such as assessment and leadership, as well as receiving observation and feedback from a visiting professional mentor who can help you develop further. Subject-specific support is also made available through the Prince’s Teaching Institute, giving you guidance on teaching strategies, access to subject-based resources, and contact with the latest academic research.

We’re looking for talented applicants who are eager to make a positive, lasting impact on the lives of the young people in our schools.

What our trainees say:

  • “My professional and subject mentors have made me feel that they are both committed to my success and to improving my teaching practice. The level of support and training I’ve received has been outstanding. I feel fully at home at my school and appreciate all the opportunities I’ve been given to contribute to curriculum discussion.” – Emma
  • “The training has been amazing – very detailed and helpful techniques.” – Tom
  • “In my past career I was bored. With United Teaching I learn something new every day, am pushed, am supported and for the first time ever I don’t dread Mondays!” – Eliza
  • “It’s great to be able to meet with other trainees every week who are on the same journey.” – Mariza
  • “The training has been so helpful, eye-opening, humbling and supportive. My mentor has been amazing. I’ve learned so much and I couldn’t imagine doing another route.” – Cate
