GLF Schools

GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School (an academy in 2011) and Danetree Junior School. Together, we began our journey to become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 10,000 children in 40 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

Primary Teacher Training

GLF Schools' Teacher Training aims to train the best primary school teachers in Surrey and beyond.

By being based in a school from day one of your training you will be able to immerse yourself in the role and get to know your host school and pupils really well. Being part of the school community gives you access to all the support and guidance that you will need in your first step into teaching.

We currently offer two routes into teaching in the Primary phase:

Ages 3-7 - This course will focus on the teaching of children aged 3-7, which includes Nursery, Reception and Key Stage 1. During your time on the course, you will experience each aspect of this age range and receive training tailored to teaching these stages.

Ages 5-11 - This course will focus on the teaching of children aged 5-11, which includes experience at both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Your training will be tailored to prepare you to teach both key stages.

Our school based training programme offers the following route into teacher training: 

  • SCITT Core (self-funded) 

This route leads Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and also offers the ability to study for a PGCE, should you wish.

The SCITT Core route provides school-led training which offers you a more gradual introduction to teaching with extensive opportunities for lesson observation and co-teaching, as you begin to develop your teaching expertise.

SCITT core courses are funded through either private finance, or via tuition fees.  You may also be eligible for a maintenance grant or special support; this will be determined by the Student Loan Company when applications for tuition fee loans are made. 

Key features:

  • £8,000 SCITT tuition fees
  • Option for an additonal PGCE uplift qualification at £1,250
  • Funded via student loans or independently
  • A gradual increase of teaching hours over the year
