Training to be a teacher in an HMC school

HMC Members are keen to recruit talented new teachers and trainees into their schools. Trainee teachers work in salaried posts in HMC independent senior schools and gain recognised, transferable teaching qualifications.

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

Successful trainees can gain recognised, transferable teaching qualifications, accepted by both independent schools and academies – the first step on the journey to a rewarding career in education.



HMC is committed to promoting excellence in education – not just academic success, but also providing the fully rounded experience young people need to be successful in their studies, and in their future careers. An excellent education requires excellent teachers, and so we are also committed to attracting the best new talent into the teaching profession. HMC welcomes new teachers into the innovative and inspirational atmosphere of HMC independent schools, where they can gain both workplace experience and accredited teacher training, and therefore make a real contribution to their school and to society.
