About our school experience
- We offer a day's school experience where candidates observe a range of teachers in the curriculum area they are interested in. There are opportunities to meet with the department at lunchtime and a senior member of staff at the end of the day to discuss routes into teaching. There is no charge.

We train our teachers directly through the Wealden Partnership, linked to Brighton and Sussex Universities.
You can also apply to train to teach at Beacon Academy by applying to our local school centre for initial teacher training,
Teach Kent and Sussex, like the Wealden Partnership, believe that the best way to train to teach is alongside highly effective teachers supported by strong mentors. Professional development, as part of your teacher training, takes place in Tunbridge Wells. This includes the training to obtain your PGCE with Sussex University.
Bromley Schools’ Collegiate is a well-established provider of Initial Teacher Training with over 25 years experience and we are pleased to be bringing this expertise to East Sussex. On our ITT programmes, trainees spend four days each week in school, learning how to teach from experienced teachers, supported by one day each week of professional training provided by Senior Leaders and experts in Teaching and Learning drawn from our schools.
