The programme for this flexible salaried route will lead to QTS qualification with the Cambridge Teaching School Network Training Partnership (CTSN) SCITT, over two years. It is aimed at high quality candidates who are career changers and who favour a part-time teacher training programme that is flexible enough to meet their personalised needs.
The rigorous recruitment selection and induction process ensures that trainees are well-matched to placement schools and that they make early progress.

- Lots of experience of teaching on the job working in partnership schools

As this new course is part of a pilot scheme and part funded by the Department of Education (DfE) the DfE intends to evaluate the course and the potential benefits to those who participate in it as well as the wider education sector. To enable them to do this we will provide the minimum information necessary to them to carry out their evaluation. DfE or a contracted organisation working on its behalf may also:
- Contact you to ask about your experiences of the training. Please note that, if contacted, you will be under no obligation to take part. If you do, you will not be identified in any results of the evaluation and you can ask not to participate or change your mind at any time
- Link information you provide in your application form with other information about you which DfE already holds or to which it is lawfully permitted access. This is to identify for example what kinds of qualifications participants to this training go on to achieve and how long they stay in teaching without having to contact you repeatedly to ask you to update your information
DfE's use of the information we share with them or it's contracted partner will have no influence on the outcome of your application or your participation in the training and DfE's findings will not identify you or any other applicants/participants. Any personal data shared with the DfE will be handled securely and only accessed for the purposes of the evaluation of teacher training, recruitment and retention. You can find out more information about DfE at www.gov.uk/dfe
