Beaumont School is part of the Alban Federation which offers teacher training via the School Direct training programme.
Our schools are fantastic places to train, work and learn. They provide a unique school-based learning opportunity in partnership with the Alban Federation. Our partnership’s vision is simple but powerful; to ensure the delivery of high quality initial teacher training that meets the needs of the local area.
All partnership schools endeavour to create an environment in which staff, pupils and trainee teachers alike feel valued and supported. We have all worked with trainee teachers for many years and we fully recognise how much vibrancy, enthusiasm and drive they can offer our respective school communities.
Importantly, the partnership sees its staff as its most valuable resource and its schools have a proven track record in training and professional development. Our teachers are excellent practitioners and are eager to share their skills, knowledge and practice with the next generation of teachers.

There are two routes you can follow to train:
- Tuition fee route: starts with a full-time, taught six week module run through the schools in the Alban Federation. Teaching starts after October half-term with a smaller timetable which builds up through the year.
- Salaried route: open to graduates with three or more years work experience. Teaching starts at the beginning of September with a smaller timetable which builds up through the year.
Both training routes include a programme of professional studies to build up your academic and practical knowledge of pedagogy, behaviour management, lesson planning, learning styles and other key educational theory and practices. You are assigned a subject mentor and a professional mentor to help you progress to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
Teachers have excellent subject knowledge and demonstrate a passion and love for their subject – OFSTED 2014
Teachers plan exciting, challenging lessons that stretch students’ thinking – OFSTED 2014
Each year the Alban Federation trains a large number of adults, either straight from university with their degrees, or people who are changing careers. Trainee teachers are placed in a host school for the year to enable them to complete their training and gain Qualified Teacher Status. All applications are submitted through UCAS (the University Admission System).
“I couldn’t have had a more supportive team to help me make the transfer from my old career to teaching. The mentoring was really helpful, both from my assigned mentors but also all the other staff that I observed or observed me during my training year.” – Maths Trainee Teacher
