Train to Teach at LEH

Have you ever thought about being a teacher? Whether it’s time for a career change or you’ve recently graduated, training to teach opens up a whole new world of rewarding opportunities.

At LEH, we know the impact that brilliant teachers can have on children's lives and see this in our classrooms every day. Engaging and inspiring teachers help pupils discover their passions and talents. It's a profession that sparks curiosity and helps establish a lifelong love of learning. 

LEH is a fantastic place to learn and teach. Our most recent inspection, in March 2022, found teaching and education quality to be ‘Excellent’, and training with LEH gives you the chance to work alongside and learn from fantastic colleagues.

Our Initial Teacher Training Team and our specialist subject departments offer an encouraging environment and provide challenges to help trainees push beyond their comfort levels with support at every step of the way.

LEH is proud to work with two national School-Centred Initial Teacher Training initiatives – known as SCITTs – to help train brilliant teachers of the future. Applying to do your training through a SCITT means you’ll spend the majority of your training time in schools, gaining a PGCE qualification after successfully completing your course.

You’ll experience being part of a team in both an independent and a maintained school. At the end of your course, you’ll have gained fantastic skills and experience along with a national qualification that will enable you to teach in either the independent or the state school sector. 

Juliet FitzGerald, Head of Initial Teacher Training, and Teacher of History and Politics, says: “Teaching is a wonderfully rewarding profession and yet the UK is facing a challenge across sectors to recruit and retain excellent teachers.  Teaching training at LEH will initially focus on training teachers in Maths, Physics and Modern Languages. We will be holding a series of taster events for anyone who would like to find out more.

“As part of the School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) opportunities at LEH, we are excited to be partnering with a number of local maintained and independent schools who will benefit from having trainees working with them.”

To find out more about teacher training at LEH, the benefits of training through a SCITT, and the dates of the taster sessions, please visit our website: Train to teach with LEH - Lady Eleanor Holles School ( or email if you have any questions.
