11-16 English

Our secondary English programme is for all trainees with an undergraduate degree in English or a related subject.  You will be trained to teach both English language and literature at Key Stage 3 and at GCSE level and you will be given training in A level English.


We are looking for teachers with excellent subject knowledge and a passion for English and what it can offer young people.  It is important that you have spent some time in a secondary school prior to application.  If you are struggling to find experience please contact us.


Our typical cohort for English is 6 trainees.  In 2017 we are offering two salaried places at Halifax Academy for applicants with 3 years of experience in working in education or other fields.
