School based teacher training in exactly that - school based. You will train to teach in a school as part of their team throughout the year and will have the opportunity for short placements at contrasting schools. You will become part of the children's lives and will make an incredible contribution to their education during the year.

Teaching in Surrey

Surrey has a reputation for the provision of high quality education and with the growth in population/new schools we need you more than ever before. You are wanted!

Surrey has a strong tradition and commitment to the training and ongoing professional development of teachers. Surrey is a thriving place to come and train, with over 400 schools ranging from small and rural to larger city ones. Surrey offers teachers the opportunity to train and develop professional practice as part of a high performing, diverse and supportive family of schools with the stewardship of one of the strongest and best regarded local authorities in the country.

Surrey is a beautiful county in South East England, which borders Kent to the east, West Sussex to the south, Hampshire to the west, Berkshire to the north west, and Greater London to the north east. Surrey is divided into eleven districts: Elmbridge, Epsom and Ewell, Guildford, Mole Valley, Reigate and Banstead, Runnymede, Spelthorne, Surrey Heath, Tandridge, Waverley and Woking. There are many Surrey based, school-led initial teacher training providers that wish to recruit and train outstanding teachers and school leaders of the future.

We are here to help get you started!

Each provider has a link on the home page. They all have members of the team who would happily answer any questions that you may have or can offer guidance on what do to next. Just ask!
