Teacher Training


Investing in the future


We believe in investing in the growth of teachers, unlocking potential and encouraging both critical thinking and engaged, dynamic learning.

Teacher learning and development is an ongoing process, beginning with an initial training phase and continuing throughout your professional life.

Our lead school, Mounts Bay Academy works with Good and Outstanding schools to offer School Direct Initial Teacher Training places in Secondary and Primary, in partnership with Cornwall SCITT – our accredited teacher training provider. At the end of the course our high quality graduates can expect to achieve QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) with a PGCE (Bath Spa University).

The course will equip you with the skills you need to inspire the thinkers and doers of the future. The School Direct route gives you the opportunity to study the craft of teaching first-hand. We take part in the application and selection process which is very thorough. The time you spend in school is maximised and exemplifies the Applied Minds philosophy of adventure and project based learning.

In order to cultivate an environment of self motivation, intelligent enquiry, compassion and respect, you will need to be inspiring, creative, knowledgeable, optimistic, patient, organised, confident and engaging.
