Striving to Achieve Our BEST!

Teacher Training

Teaching is an exciting and diverse profession, which means you can go home each day knowing you’ve made a real difference and a valuable contribution to shaping the future of the next generation.   It’s a great world to be part of.  Our school is committed to training the teachers of the future.  Through our partnerships with local universities, we host block placements for trainees at every stage of their training journey.  In addition, we recruit school direct trainees through the East Midlands Teacher Training Partnership and the Minster Teaching School Alliance.  Both are high quality, school-led programmes for trainee teachers with supporting theoretical input provided by the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University.  We believe this is a great way to train as a Teacher, with four days a week spent in school learning alongside highly committed and professional teaching staff and one day at university. 


As a trainee teacher at Awsworth Primary & Nursery School, you will be provided with an experienced mentor and fully included as a member of our large, friendly staff team.  Ours is a popular school, attracting 40% of our pupils from outside the catchment area.  We are able to offer a wide spectrum of experiences in which to build your knowledge and skills within the teaching profession, including delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum, assessment, SEND provision, global diversity, rights respecting development and PE. 


We are looking for trainee teachers who have commitment, enthusiasm and determination to become a skilled professional, with good communication skills and high standards.
