Teacher Apprentice programme


At Rotherfield and Newington Green we want to support our staff in professional development, and grow our own teachers. We wish to support staff who want to train as class teachers in this way, whilst maintaining high standards and securing school improvement. This programme arises from our desire to balance individual development and school improvement, and applies to staff who wish to gain QTS to teach all subjects under the national curriculum as class teachers.


For more information see our policy below.
