Why Choose Kingsbridge?

course have already found jobs.”

Choosing a place to complete the next step of your learning journey can be tough.
At Kingsbridge we provide a fantastic package that offers excellent training, experience and results. We have a strong tradition of academic excellence. For more than 10 years we have been training graduates to become outstanding teachers. We are proud to say that we have a 100 per cent pass rate, with 85 per cent of trainees achieving the outstanding grade.
We offer a wide variety of opportunities to enrich your training. You will spend all your time with us based in one of our partner schools. You will also be able to experience life in a different teaching environment through a separate placement.
We will be with you every step of the way because all our placements offer a level of support to suit your needs. Every trainee has a school-based mentor who is on hand to offer daily advice and guidance. You will also get outstanding support from your subject coaches and Kingsbridge’s team of consultants.
At the end of your training you will achieve qualified teacher status and a PGCE (SCITT). This qualification will give you 60 masters credits which you can use if you choose to go on to complete your masters qualification.
“The quality of mentoring is of a high standard. School-based and subject
mentors work closely with trainees to develop their subject knowledge and
teaching skills. They skilfully coach and develop trainees’ skills in a
systematic way, through the setting of short-term targets. By the end of
their training, trainees are highly accomplished practitioners in all aspects of
the teachers’ standards.” Ofsted, November 2015
