A strong focus on CPD and career progression

Teacher training at Swindon Academy is a path to a long-term career. United Learning schools seek to employ our trainees after completion of the programme as Newly Qualified Teachers – with the potential for rapid promotion to middle and senior leadership in our schools or a Group-spanning position. Within just a couple of years or less, some of our trainees have gone on to become heads of year or faculty.

The training doesn’t end with your QTS either. Once you’ve joined a United Learning school, you can expect a structured pathway of continuous professional development, through the United Learning Institute, an excellent remuneration package (above the maintained sector), and at least eight INSET days with three dedicated to planning.
