Our ambition for apprentices is to complete the QTS element of the programme as a ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ professional with Qualified Teacher Status, and the overall apprenticeship programme with a ‘merit’ or ‘distinction’. This demands that OME upholds the highest standard of teacher training.

A blended learning model is used throughout the course, containing both online and classroom-based teaching and mentoring.
Each school is encouraged to input into the bespoke design of PGTA programme to be delivered in its school.
