Secure graduate employment for your students and enhance employability statistics
Graduate Teachers become brand ambassadors, promoting your HEI in their school and strengthening your school partnerships
Committed and experienced Graduate Teachers can progress to your PGCE programme or school led programme and are very likely to complete
Link this scheme to new and existing widening participation and school outreach projects to maximise impact
This Scheme is highly flexible. Your institution may also wish to sponsor Schools directly by contributing financially to the cost to Schools of employing Graduates. This sponsorship will support Schools to be able to afford to employ more Graduate Teachers.
Sponsorship agreements between universities and other higher education providers and schools can contain agreements about how Graduate Teachers may be used to support widening participation and school outreach projects and activities. Universities and other higher education institutions may wish to focus sponsorship on schools and areas where there are higher numbers of disadvantaged pupils and students and lower participation in higher education. They may also wish to focus sponsorship on those Graduate Teachers who, themselves, are from disadvantaged backgrounds.
