Get into teaching

There are many routes into teaching and Attain can support you on your own path, providing assistance and advice along the way as part of teacher training in London. Most teachers train through School Direct or Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) programmes – both of which lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Get into teaching via School Direct 

Our partners offer School Direct training working alongside Initial Teacher Training (ITT) providers to ensure you can grow into your new career in the right school, with the support of expert teachers who have a wealth of experience. Our school-based training partners are the Merton Special Teaching Alliance and Teach Wimbledon.








Where can I do a PGCE?

You can apply directly through a number of universities to gain a PGCE. Merton has many teachers who have trained at institutions across the country. It is important you find the right university for you and consider where you might want to work when you complete your course.
