Ark Teacher Training is part of Ark, an international education charity which aims to give every young person a great education and real choices in life. Ark Teacher Training exists to ensure all children, regardless of their background, have access to a high-quality education. We do this by recruiting bright, motivated graduates and training them to become great teachers in a school in our network.
We work mainly in areas of low income with a history of academic underachievement. According to the Department for Education, Ark, makes the biggest difference in transforming the lives of disadvantaged students out of all the major academy networks.
In January 2017, our training was rated as ‘outstanding’ in all areas by Ofsted. The report praised the programme, stating it offered “exceptionally tailored coaching and training… of the very highest standard.”
Our two-year programme incorporates gaining a PGCE qualification and Qualified Teacher Status in the first year, with a comprehensive NQT programme in the second. All our trainees are supported through our rigorous programme by a strong network of experienced educators.
Most of our graduates stay teaching in our school and we would love you to do the same. With a network of over 35 schools in the UK and dedicated central team, there are a variety of opportunities for you to develop your career. Whatever your aspirations, we will support you throughout and provide you with plenty of opportunities to progress, and quickly.
Ark Teacher Training is the perfect start to a successful and rewarding career in teaching.
