We believe that the most effective way to train you to teach your subject/phase, is to allow you to spend the maximum time possible in the classroom with an experienced practitioner as your Mentor. You will undertake teaching placements in at least two different schools. During each placement you will be supported by a subject specialist who has been trained to act as your Mentor, as well as a Senior Member of staff who oversees the placement.

Within the School Direct routes,we offer (Qualified Teacher Status) QTS but can also provide trainees with the opportunity to gain a Top Up Level 7 PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) qualification, delivered at KMT and online, currently by the University of Brighton.

Studying for this PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education), currently involves research based on “Evidence in Practice” to support your development as a teacher.

It is a qualification that you can complete during your training or in your NQT year and beyond. It leads to 60 Masters Level credits in addition to the PGCE. 

KMT currently has training opportunities within the following subjects listed below:

MathsPhysics, Chemistry, Modern Foreign Languages, Computer Science, General Primary, Business Studies, English, Geography, History, Maths, Art, Music, PE, Psychology, Drama, Dance, Health and Social Care and Design Technology. (Subjects offered can change on an annual basis)
