Training While You Teach

Swindon Academy offers a supportive, welcoming environment in which to complete your training. As well as a dedicated subject and professional mentor, we also benefit from bespoke weekly CPD from expert teachers and an excellent programme of in-house whole school CPD to enhance your training. Many of our current staff have come through our teaching training programme.  We also provide centralised planning banks from which to plan your lessons, allowing you to focus on quality of delivery. Get in touch to arrange an informal visit, and to discuss the programme.
