If you wish to make the transition from a school support role like a teaching assistant to qualified teacher, The Stour Academy Trust can offer suitable candidates the ability to complete the Straight To Teaching programme, fully paid by the Trust.

This CPD course offers an unparalleled opportunity to obtain QTS without leaving a Trust school. It is a high quality, low-cost alternative to initial teacher training that is personalised to you and your school.
