Get Into Teaching



Every lesson shapes a life, DfE 2019.

Shape lives

If you want to shape lives, training to teach with KMT Teacher Training can help you reach that goal.

You'll be in lessons and help shape lives, throughout your training with KMT. We believe that the most effective way to train to teach is to spend the maximum time possible in the classroom with an experienced practitioner as your Mentor.

Your training will be undertaken with teaching placements in at least two different schools and across consecutive Key Stages. 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.

School Direct

Within the School Direct routes, we offer Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) but can also provide trainees with the opportunity to gain a Level 7 PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) qualification. This is a distance-learning PGCE, completed online and delivered and assessed by Leeds Beckett University. https://courses.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/SPGCE/

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. 


Any potential trainees who have future aspirations to possibly teach abroad should approach the appropriate country, to ensure that the PGCE programme meets their entry requirements. We strongly advise this, as it varies between countries and on some occasions a country may make changes without notification to ITT Providers.
