HMC Teacher Training

HMC Teacher Training is a two year programme of recruitment, training and induction that provides a direct route into the teaching profession. Trainee teachers work in salaried posts in HMC independent senior schools and gain a PGCE with Qualified Teacher Status.

Individuals participating in the HMC Teacher Training programme enjoy employment in some of the UK’s most outstanding schools. They have the chance to teach their specialist subject and take part in the extra-curricular activities so important to school life.

Successful trainees leave the programme with a recognised, transferable teaching qualification, accepted by both independent and maintained sectors – the first step on the journey to a rewarding career in education.
