  1. Dear Theo,
    How can I find a list of schools in the South-East which support RTS (Registered Teacher Status) trainees. Should I contact schools directly or is there a list of recruitment schools.
    In order that I participate in the RTS programme,the TDA website stipulates that a trainee must already have a teaching job.
    How can a trainee already have a teaching job?
    which is why I am trying to find which schools support the programme.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Obviously not Theo, but some of this might help. You could look on your local council website, where there is normally a list of schools. Maybe you could contact them directly.
    Taken from TDA website.
    You can complete the RTP in any English school, as long as they are prepared to employ you as an unqualified teacher for the duration of the programme. Independent schools can be involved in the RTP, but these applications would have to be self-funded. Pupil referral units cannot employ RTP trainees or have any involvement with the training. In Wales, the Minister for Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills has announced that RTP will not be offered to new entrants from 2007 onwards.
    <u>How do you apply</u>
    Your first step is to find a school willing to employ you and support you through the programme. You then need to apply directly to your local EBITT provider. They will assess your application and establish what further training you would need to meet the standards for QTS.
    Some EBITT providers can help you find a post in a school &ndash; otherwise you can look for vacancies in the local and national press, as well as on local authority and recruitment websites.
    Found this table on TES for you too.
    There are many ways to fit study and qualification around your financial situation and family commitments.The choice is yours.
