If you’d like to give your staff, including senior leaders, the opportunity for professional development, but feel it’s impossible due to a lack of funding or time available to leave work, we’re here to help.
BeReady partners with leading universities and teacher training institutions to provide predominantly online, tailored for education courses. These range from Teacher Apprenticeships leading to QTS (Qualified Teacher Status), to apprenticeship degree courses and MBAs that will help further develop school and Trust leaders.
These part-time courses enable learners to study in the workplace and at home, earning as they learn, and furthering their career goals.
For schools, meanwhile, they offer an excellent opportunity to improve school productivity and are useful for retention and reward for high fliers.
All courses are funded by the Apprenticeship Levy, so there is no cost involved for the school or learner. (If your school is not a levy payer, you can get government help that will cover almost the full amount of the tuition fees and we can guide you through the process.)
The many benefits of these tailored for education courses include:
- No cost – fully funded via the Apprenticeship Levy
- No added travel – learners study in-school and at home using an innovative online platform
- Relevant – content blends pan-industry and education sector specific
- Immediately applicable – learning can be applied to the day-to-day work role
Best business practice brought to your school
Many of the challenges that school staff are presented with are faced by their peers across all professions. We therefore provide evidence-based learning content founded on research and learning from all industries. This enables educational professionals to benefit from the broad experience of other sectors about universal subjects, including people management, communication and finance.
Contextualised content immediately applicable
Alongside the theory, bespoke programmes have been developed by education experts who have a wealth of experience of working in the sector.
With their expert guidance, course content has been made directly relevant and immediately applicable to your educational setting. For busy education professionals who don’t have the luxury of time just to study theory, this is crucial. Through carefully tailored case studies, exercises and projects, new knowledge and skills can be put into practice.
The flexible route to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)
With our Teacher Apprenticeship, meanwhile, we’ve made teacher training as accessible as possible.
Whether the learner is a practising Teaching Assistant, a non-qualified teacher, someone employed in a non-teaching role in a school, or a graduate wishing to gain QTS, our flexible online programme enables them to learn in-school and at home, while still earning.
The course covers both academic theory and practice so that these staff can quickly gain the professional knowledge, skills and behaviours required to be an effective and successful teacher.
