Update on School Direct 2019/20 Cohort
In such difficult circumstances as presented by Covid-19, the School Direct mentors continue to offer an outstanding service, many meeting their trainees via online video-conferencing, with Zoom becoming a household word. Trainees have been reassured they will not miss out on NQT status and we currently await the new guidance from CCCU as to how to move forward.
To date 90% are on track to pass with the highest grades and 10% with a grade 3 hopefully moving to a grade 2. So far 17 trainees have informed us that they have secured NQT placements for 2020/21, with 82% of those 17 remaining at their training school and 6% securing their NQT year outside of Medway.
Update on School Direct 2020/21 Recruitment
Recruitment continues to happen in these strange and unprecedented circumstances. Like most aspects of life, it just looks a little different than usual. The MTSA continues to accept and review applications, while KMT are conducting interviews remotely in collaboration with the host schools. So far we have recruited a further 2 using this process. Once schools are open again, candidates will have an opportunity to visit their base school.
Exciting recruitment opportunities continue to be available through our new partnership with KMT for September 2020 start. If you have staff within your schools who wish to progress on to a teacher training route, or family members looking to change careers into a career with high job security, please promote the opportunities we have in a range of phases and subjects.
