Train to Teach - School Based Route 

School based routes are an initial teacher training programme based in schools as opposed to university. Trainees do spend one day a week with our higher education partner, the University of Hertfordshire and must therefore have access to travel there. The remaining four days a week take place in school. The idea is to give trainee teachers more ‘hands-on’ teaching experience than traditional university-based routes into teaching. There are two programmes offered by the East Herts partnership: these are the salaried and fee-paying routes.

We welcome regular help from parents with reading, artwork, helping with outings and making and repairing apparatus.  If you would like to offer help, either in school or at home, please contact your child’s class teacher. Volunteers and parent helpers in school need to have DBS checks prior to helping in school.
