Train to teach with LEH


Teaching is genuinely the best job in the world. 

Whether it’s time for a career change, you’ve recently graduated, or you want to try something different following a break from work, training to teach opens up a whole new world of rewarding opportunities. 

why train to teach?

Engaging and inspiring teachers help pupils discover their passions and talents. It's a profession that sparks curiosity and helps establish a lifelong love of learning. At LEH, we know the impact that brilliant teachers can have and see this in our classrooms every day.  

There are many different routes into teaching and bursaries and scholarships are available in certain subjects to provide financial support during training. 

No two days are ever the same and no class is ever the same. I can’t imagine ever being bored in this job. 

why train with LEH?

Training teachers and helping them develop the knowledge and skills to deliver an outstanding learning experience for pupils is something we’re passionate about at LEH.  

LEH is a fantastic place to learn and teach. Our most recent inspection in March 2022, found teaching and education quality to be ‘Excellent’, and training with LEH gives you the chance to work alongside and learn from fantastic colleagues. Our Initial Teacher Training team and our specialist subject departments offer an encouraging environment and provide challenge to help trainees push beyond their comfort levels with support at every step of the way,  

LEH is proud to work with two national School-Centred Initial Teacher Training initiatives – known as SCITTs – to help train brilliant teachers of the future. Applying to do your training through a SCITT means you’ll spend the majority of your training time in schools, gaining a PGCE qualification after successfully completing your course. You’ll experience being part of a team in both an independent and a state school. At the end of your course, you’ll have gained fantastic skills and experience along with a national qualification that will enable you to teach in either the independent or the state school sector. 

I love how much I learn on a daily basis – I teach but I learn too.
