We invite you to apply to join our BBEST Schools Direct programme. If successful you will be allocated to one of our local schools in the Batley and Birstall area where you will benefit from a comprehensive training package ensuring you have the skills to be a highly successful teacher and potential leader of tomorrow.

We open from 8 October 2019 for September 2020 and have a number of unpaid places available.

The period of training is for one year commencing September 2020.

Field Lane Junior, Infant and Nursery School is the lead school for our group of 17 Primary Schools within the BBEST pyramid. In partnership with Kirklees and Calderdale SCITT, our training providers, we are highly committed to providing excellent Initial Teacher Training: four days per week learning as you teach at your host school and one day per week at one of a range of venues across Kirklees on a comprehensive training course devised by Lead Professionals and agreed with Huddersfield University with whom we are affiliated. You will be supported throughout the process by a trained mentor. 

All successful candidates will be offered the opportunity to choose either the QTS route or a PGCE from the University. 

The SCITT Programme is a rigorous and practical route leading to the award of QTS. The programme supports trainees to develop a wide range of teaching skills; to reflect on their practice; and to demonstrate, from the evidence of their school and other training experiences, that they meet the requirements of the professional standards for teaching.
