Future Career

Lionheart Teach offers an interview and first refusal on available posts to our trainee teachers in Leicester and Leicestershire who train to teach on our school direct programme – email info@beauchampteach.org.uk to find out more.

The training I received with Lionheart Teach was immensely supportive. Mentors and staff coordinating the programme are fantastic at providing the right amount of support and guidance but also knowing when to step back and let you take the reigns.

Training to teach felt like an incredibly daunting experience before I started my school placements but through my time in the classroom at Beauchamp College and The Cedars Academy, I felt encouraged and enthused.

I felt truly respected as a professional and felt like one of the team from day one of my training: mentors allowed opportunities for me to explore and to put my research into practice but also to provide on-hand advice and the sort of insight that only comes from experience and true passion for the job.

The training programme provided invaluable opportunities allowed me to feel truly confident in undertaking my NQT year and also set the precedent for a career of continuous professional development.
