At the West London Free School our emphasis is very much on teaching children a subject-based, knowledge-rich curriculum. All children, regardless of their background, should have the opportunity to participate in the great conversations of mankind that are sustained through the academic disciplines, and we are committed to the idea that an education in the academic disciplines prepares students to participate as informed citizens in our society. If you are thinking about becoming a teacher, and you share this vision for our schools, then we are pleased to say that you can apply to complete your teacher training with the West London Free School.
The West London Free School is a partner school of Future Training’s Pimlico-London PGCE programme. We offer you the opportunity to gain QTS and a PGCE accredited by University College London’s Institute of Education. The emphasis in this training course is to on developing you as a subject-specialist teacher who is fully aware of the wider debates and research developments in the wider field of education. As part of your training, you will learn more about your subject as well as thinking through the complex curriculum and assessment problems associated with teaching it. You will find out about how people learn, using some the latest insights from cognitive psychology, and use this knowledge to think through some of the main challenges facing teachers. By the end of your course, you will be ready to launch a successful career as a subject teacher, ready to engage in discussion and debate about how we might continue to improve the education our children receive.
