Return To Teaching

Are you a qualified teacher looking to return to teaching in the primary classroom?

South Farnham Teaching School is delighted to be delivering a Return to Primary Teaching course for qualified teachers looking to update their knowledge of the educational landscape and regain confidence in the classroom.

The two week course involves a variety of taught sessions delivered by expert primary practitioners as well as observation and teaching experience in our outstanding infant or junior settings. Taught sessions focus on key changes that have taken place at national level, such as, the new National Curriculum and assessment procedures as well as providing practical training regarding the most up to date pedagogy and methodology. The teaching placement is a bespoke element of the course allowing us to personalise your training to your needs and experience.

The course will cover:

  • The New Primary National Curriculum
  • Numeracy and Literacy
  • Planning and Assessment
  • Special Educational Needs and Disability
  • Behaviour Management
  • Computing and Technology for Learning
  • The Teachers’ Standards
  • Advice on applying for teaching positions.

To be eligible for the Returning To Primary Teaching course you need to hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). We also welcome applications from teachers who have trained overseas but whose qualifications have been endorsed in the UK. In addition to completing the application form you will need to provide:

  • Proof of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)
  • Your Teachers’ Reference Number (previously known as the DfE number)
  • You will also need to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check previously known as a CRB.

Cost: £350

A Certificate of Attendance will be awarded on completion of the course which may benefit future applications for teaching posts.
