In Partnership with Teaching Personnel and Protocol Education, Best Practice Network is launching support for graduate teachers through the Future Teachers Programme. 

To provide graduates with the best opportunities for success at the start of their careers, we are delighted to be supporting Teaching Personnel's Future Teachers programme.

The programme is designed to help address the teacher shortages across England & Wales by attracting bright graduates who are considering a career in teaching but wish to gain practical experience before enrolling in initial teacher training (ITT).

Future Teacher candidates will also receive free access to six online support modules provided by Best Practice Network containing six hours of content aligned to both the Teacher Standards and Early Career Framework. Badges are rewarded for the successful completion of each pack.
