Paradigm Teaching School:

The seven Epsom Deanery Primary Schools, of which St Francis' is one, are pleased to offer School Direct training places through the Paradigm Teaching School.

We place student teachers in our local Catholic schools and assist them towards becoming excellent practitioners. Trainees follow the full PGCE programme at St Mary's University, Twickenham and also finish the course with the QTS qualification.  Trainees can also work towards Masters credits throughout the year. 

If you are considering teacher training or want to discuss TSA support, please get in touch with Mrs Wheeler (Head of St Francis') or Jo Cullen, Deputy Head at Paradigm by email to  paradigm@stjosephs-epsom.surrey.sch.uk
