Teach First

 

Teach First is an independent charity that takes outstanding graduates and, in partnership with schools, develops these graduates into successful teachers.

Teach First participants follow a two year Leadership Development Programme, alongside in-school and University based teacher training, in order to become very positive role models for the young people with whom they will work.

The two Universities involved with Teach First are Canterbury Christ Church University and The Institute of Education in London.

Schools Direct

 

Schools Direct is a new postgraduate route for schools to recruit and train their teachers.

Working in partnership with a University, or accredited Teacher Training Institute, schools can request training places from the NCTL, and candidates can then apply for these places through UCAS.

Harris Academy Morden currently operates as part of the Harris Federation Teaching School Alliance.

We are also planning to work in partnership with other Universities in order to extend the range of subjects we are able to offer.
