Do you...

  • Have a passion for Music and a desire to inspire young people to enjoy and engage with Music?

  • Have an innate ability to communicate and relate to young people?

  • Have a positive outlook and the energy and resilience to tackle challenges?

Entry Requirements

Alongside your passion and drive we require the following qualifications:

  • GCSE (or equivalent) Grade C/4 and above in English and Maths

  • A Level Music is highly desirable

  • Honours degree 2.2 or above in a relevant subject - we do consider trainees who do not have a degree in Music if you have evidence of strong subject knowledge, experience in a career relating to music or a strong Music A Level.

How The i2i Training Programme Works

When you start teacher training with the i2i Teaching Partnership, you begin with 3 days in the classroom at your host school and 2 days at your local Training Centre. After the first half term break, this schedule changes to 4 days in the classroom and 1 day at the Training Centre.

Training is divided into Professional Studies and Subject Studies.

  • Professional Studies focuses on more general aspects of teaching such as behaviour management, feedback, mastery and differentiation
  • Subject Studies considers these issues in the context of Music and supports your learning to teach the complexities of the Music curriculum.

At your host school you will begin the term by observing teachers teach a range of classes that you may eventually be teaching yourself. You will have opportunities to teach small groups within classes, take small episodes within lessons and gradually build towards taking whole lessons and then a series of lessons.

By Christmas of the first term you will be teaching around 60% of a Newly Qualified Teacher's timetable. Throughout this time, you will have a mentor within your host school. Your mentor will support and coach you, helping you improve and gain confidence. Each week, you will return to your local Training centre for the next phase of training and for an opportunity to reflect on progress.
