The STEP Academy Trust is a multi-academy trust with 14 PRIMARY schools in South London and East Sussex.
Graduates employed in a STEP school under the Graduate Teaching Scheme can expect, presuming that they make good progress, to be offered a place on the STEP PGCE programme in partnership with Buckingham University, with the FEES PAID by STEP.
Typically graduates will spend up to 1 year working in a teaching and support capacity before formally transitioning to the PGCE programme.
STEP Academy Trust is committed to improving the life chances of all children and has a strong and unique sense of unity. All STEP Academies support STEP First, the commitment that everyone is one team. As such, STEP establishes consistency in its approaches and supports everyone to improve and always remain firmly focused on the challenges ahead. STEP believes it is this approach, articulated through the STEP Compass, which enables children in STEP schools to achieve the quality education they deserve – the STEP Standard.
