ARK Elvin is one of the best teacher training schools in the country. We are committed to supporting and challenging you from your first day with us, to become the best teacher you can be. Trainee teachers at Elvin have an individualised training plan and weekly mentor meetings and join a school that deeply believes in regular training, practice and feedback so that, as a team and as individuals, we are always growing and developing using research-informed training methods. This is shown not only in our rapidly improving results, but also through the significant number of trainees who step into leadership positions in their third year at Elvin.

Ark Teacher Training gives the best graduates and career changers the chance to transform lives through education. We want to give every young person, regardless of background, access to a great education through running great schools –and training great teachers. 

Unlike a university based PGCE, you will be based in Ark Elvin Academy from day one, having an impact straight away.

You’ll be supported throughout your training programme, with in-school coaches, a dedicated tutor and education experts across the network providing you with the guidance, support and advice you need.

Earn a PGCE (postgraduate certificate in education), QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) and 60 credits towards a Master’s degree at the end of your first training year, before embarking on a highly supportive and tailored Early Career Teacher Induction in year 2 and 3.

Training as part of Team Elvin with the Ark Teacher Training programme is the perfect start to a successful career in a teaching.
