Teacher training

Our School Direct – Initial Teacher Training programme devised by local headteachers, in conjunction with Bath Spa University, places trainee teachers in the classroom for most of the year, working alongside experienced teachers to learn the skills of teaching “on the job”. This real teaching experience is supported by training held at both the University and TBMPTS.

Apply for your teacher training place with us through UCAS by going to their website, clicking on the Teacher Training button, then the Train to Teach in England button and then the Postgraduate training button which will take you to the new government search site for teacher training.

We have vacancies for primary trainees and can also offer an SEND route – feel free to contact us for an informal chat to find out more details.

Applications for places on the course for the 2020-21 academic year have now closed. The application window for 2021-22 will reopen later in the autumn.

We have been running our successful programme for five years and have seen fantastic results along the way with all of our trainees securing teaching jobs after completion of their PGCE training year.

Below are comments from previous years’ students

“TBMPTS offer so much support and guidance with quality additional training.”


“What a great year! After 15 years of working in retail I can honestly say
this has been a great career change.  I’ve loved every minute of it. Thank you!”


“What a fantastic year! The range of training available this year has been brilliant- from
DT to PE and phonics to SEND, it has all made me feel really prepared for my own class next year!”


“The Bath and Mendip Partnership Teaching School have been so supportive, like a family to me.
Not only do I feel I chose the best course I could have, but I have now got a job within the trust.
I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon this course, I would 100% recommend the route and couldn’t be happier.”


“I’ve met such a wonderful bunch of people that were the biggest support throughout the year
(and I’m sure will be beyond this year!) I feel well prepared for my NQT year and am excited
for the years ahead. Helen and Alison have been brilliant.”
