Alban Federation Partnership

Verulam is a member of the Alban Federation partnership in the area of teacher training. Each year the Federation trains a large number of adults (51 in 2018/19), either straight from University with their degrees, or people who are changing careers, and places them in a host school for the year to enable them to complete their training and gain Qualified Teacher Status. All applications are submitted through UCAS (the University Admission System) and this year the application window is scheduled to open on 9th October 2018, for courses starting in September 2019. Courses are available in both Primary and Secondary programmes, with salaries or bursaries available for suitably qualified candidates in many subjects.

If you are interested in becoming a teacher and would like to find out more about how to apply and what is involved, we are holding an Open Morning on Saturday 13th October 2018 in the Sixth Form Centre at Sandringham School in St Albans. It runs from 9.30am to Midday and you are more than welcome to come along and meet current trainees, senior school staff and federation team members. Equally, if you know of anyone who is keen to train to teach, this will be a very useful event for them to attend.

Further details can be obtained from the school by contacting Mr Giles [email protected] or direct from Alban Federation team via [email protected]
