Thinking of becoming a teacher?
The UCAS Portal has now opened for Applications for the academic year 2019/20
The TTA has pro-actively responded to the recent Government changes and works closely with Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU) and University of Brighton (UoB) in order to develop the Schools Direct and Schools Direct Primary Programmes in order to grow and develop a quality teaching workforce across the Tandridge area. Our trainees work alongside, and learn from, outstanding teachers in our Alliance and gain experience in a range of settings and contexts.
School Direct Training with the TTA
School Direct is a relatively new route into teaching which moves the focus of study from a university to a school. Whether you’ve just finished a degree, or have been working in a career for many years, you will probably want to combine any further teacher training with actually doing the job. With School Direct, you are selected by the Alliance from day one and we make a commitment not only to your training but to your subsequent employment.

Our television screens have recently been inundated with programmes such as Educating Yorkshire, Educating Essex, Tough Young Teachers, and more recently Educating the East End, which have followed teachers that work in a range of schools. But what makes a good teacher, and why would you teach?
