Routes into Teaching Offered by MC & GM TT Consortium, in Partnership With Schools

CANDIDATE GUIDANCE 2019/2020 PROGRAMME

Note: This guidance is for candidates considering applying to schools working in partnership with the Merseyside, Cheshire and Greater Manchester Teacher Training Consortium. Other providers may have different requirements.

MC & GM TT Consortium offers the following 3 routes to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), in partnership with schools:

  1. School Direct (Salaried) – Open Recruitment
    The Merseyside, Cheshire and Greater Manchester Teacher Training Consortium works in partnership with the North Liverpool Teaching Schools – NLTS (the lead school is Everton Nursery and Family Centre). These places may not yet be filled and are open for application.

    The Merseyside, Cheshire and Greater Manchester Teacher Training Consortium is managing the recruitment and selection process on behalf of NLTS.

    Candidates should have secured a school that is willing to employ them as an Unqualified Teacher, and the school is willing to work in partnership with a consortium of schools.

    Application Guidelines for the School Direct (Salaried) route can be found here.

  2. School/Self-funded Employed
    The Merseyside, Cheshire and Greater Manchester Teacher Training Consortium also accept applications from candidates who have secured a school who will employ them for the duration of their training, and either the school or the trainee will pay our training fee.

    These are not funded by the Government and consequently the number of places is not restricted.
    Candidates will still need to go through our selection process to confirm their place.

    Application Guidelines for the School/Self-funded Employed route can be found here.

  3. Assessment Only
    This route is for unqualified teachers with, at least two years teaching experience and taught in two different schools, meeting the requirements for QTS before application.

    Application Guidelines for the Assessment Only route can be found here.

  4. Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship
    The new Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship was launched in September 2018 and this means that schools have an opportunity to use apprenticeship funding (the apprenticeship levy) for training and end point assessment. Apprentice teachers will need to meet the same statutory requirements for entry as all other ITT programmes and will be assessed against the Teachers’ Standards.

    Application Guidelines for the Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship route can be found here.
