  • hold a degree and/or have significant work experience which is a good match with their chosen teaching subject;
  • have a passion for their subject;
  • demonstrate competence in the fundamental English and mathematics proficiencies outlined by the Department for Education (2019);
  • are able to work effectively with young people;
  • are confident, motivated and well-organised;
  • can work constructively with other people in a team;
  • are self-aware and open to learning;
  • can embrace and engender a climate of equality, diversity and inclusion;
  • are able to communicate in accurate, confident written and spoken Standard English;
  • reveal insights into teaching and learning;
  • express a long-term commitment to teaching as a career;
  • wish to take up  teaching employment in England (usually in KEC or other local schools) at the end of the programme.

Partnership leaders say ‘you can tell a KEC trainee a mile-off’. They are right. Trainees are highly professional, reflective and dedicated.
