A teacher affects eternity

10 October 2015

Looking for a pathway into teaching?

'A teacher affects eternity; you never know when your influence stops'. This profound quote by Henry Adams is perfectly true and should be experienced to be fully understood. Teaching changes children’s lives and is supremely rewarding.

Upper Shirley High ( a member of Wildern Partnership SCITT) is delighted to offer salaried training placements in English, Maths and Science for next academic year (2016/17). In collaboration with the highly rated Wildern SCITT programme, USH offers a tailor-made experience which brings out the best in each trainee; preparing you fully to begin your career in teaching. Our school is welcoming and nurturing (the local school of choice) and you will be mentored and advised by committed caring professionals. Salary arrangements for next academic year have yet to be confirmed by the DfE but you will be paid on the unqualified teacher scale as you train (current training payments are in the region of £16,000).
