"An outstanding secondary teaching training provider" (ofsted 2016)


Last Thursday night, The OAKS was represented at the ‘Train to Teach’, hosted by Landau Forte College in Derby. The event, which ran between 16:30 and 19:30, was relatively well-attended, with visitors inquiring into teacher training at The OAKS.  Our stall was staffed by OAKS tutors, Andy and Dave, along with Computer Science trainee, Thomas Tilsley.

Tom’s commitment and enthusiasm was invaluable and he eager to speak to everyone and promote The OAKS in the best possible way.  Tom undoubtedly enhancing our profile with visitors who were able to gain firsthand advice from one of our current trainee teachers.

Andy, Dave and Tom were also extremely impressed with all of the ‘future teachers’ that visited the stall, with many expressing an interest in the course.

The Train to Teach events offer a brilliant opportunity to find out more about teacher training and what a career in teaching has to offer. They’re also a great way for you to meet the schools and universities that lead teacher training around the country, and get one-to-one advice on every aspect of getting into teaching.

The OAKS tutors were extremely proud to have Tom on-board and thank her for giving up her valuable time to assist them on the night.
