I’ve secured a teaching job for my ITT year – when do I start?

First of all, congratulations, that’s great news!

You will have an Immersion Period at your Employer School before the summer break – this will be at least two weeks for you to find your feet, meet your colleagues and get to know the school and how the school day runs. This will be organised ahead of time so that you can get dates in your diary.

You will then start work at your Employer School at the start of the academic year in September – this is usually a day or two ahead of the pupils so that you have time to prepare. Your Initial Teacher Training course led by your RTC will start shortly after this.
