Train to become a teacher in 12 months, on the job and get paid to do it through Teaching Apprenticeships!

Undertaking a Teaching Apprenticeship is an exciting alternative to completing a PGCE at university, and the good news is that it does not attract all the associated costs.

A trainee is paid as an unqualified teacher, while they learn on the job. They have access to quality training and support from expert tutors as well as an in-school mentor.

At e-Qualitas, the leading UK based, DfE approved, Initial Teacher Training company. We offer TAP - A Teacher Apprenticeship Programme, so university graduates can pursue a career in teaching. It is an on the job, salaried apprenticeship. Our success rate for training teachers is 95%. 

Job prospects are excellent, with most staying on and developing in the school they trained in.

The Teaching Apprenticeship Programme (TAP) provides a pathway for trainee teachers to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) within a 12 month period while earning a salary and learning on the job.

“A massive thank you to you and the different training tutors that provided us with in-depth information on how to achieve each of the Teachers' Standards, I have learnt a lot from them on each training day. In addition, I would like to discuss how amazing my GTP mentor was, Anna Savva has supported me throughout my training and I can't thank her enough for all of the constructive feedback and motivation she installed in me to be my best in becoming a great teacher which led me to achieve QTS.”
