Initial Teacher Training though the PGCE and School Direct Routes
We offer an outstanding teacher training programme at Swanlea; as a teaching school, we offer student teachers a positive and rewarding experience. The feedback we receive from our trainee teachers is overwhelmingly positive. We offer a full range of subjects and our experienced staff support all of our beginner teachers through their programmes by providing excellent mentoring, professional training, demonstrating good practice and offering consistent, fair and positive feedback.
Swanlea has excellent working relationships with higher education providers, such as the UCL Institute of Education, University of East London and King’s College.
As well as welcoming trainee teachers through the traditional PGCE route, we also provide school-based training through School Direct, both salaried and non-salaried, which is offered through the City Excellence Partnership.
The programme is led by Monica Compton (Senior Leader).
