2021 Changes to Salary Grant Funding of Teacher Apprentices and Schools Direct Trainees. 

British Schools are able to utilise their Apprenticeship Levy to cover the costs of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) for their unqualified teachers. This is just one reason why schools like to grow their own talent, as costs are low and funding is also available to partially cover the salaries of their trainees. 

Schools partner with us, and we train up in-school mentors and Apprentices over 12 months on their pathway to gaining QTS. Our Apprentices have a 95% completion rate, and retention rates are high for graduates as they have trained and developed in situ.

Do you have a graduate working in your school that is ready to start a Teaching Apprenticeship? 

Your school can still benefit from the current Salary Grants if your graduate starts their Apprenticeship in April 2021,  through the Teaching Apprenticeship Programme. Your Apprenticeship Levy will cover our training fees, so costs are minimal and within 12 months you will have grown a teacher, who is already embedded in your school community. 

Do you need us to source your school quality candidates to take Teaching Apprenticeships at your school?

We have a large, talented pool of enthusiastic graduates, keen to take up a Teaching Apprenticeship in April 2021. Ask us about how we can support your school to find you the right trainees.

What our teachers say about us...

I would like to discuss how amazing my GTP mentor was. Anna Savva has supported me throughout my training and I can't thank her enough for all of the constructive feedback and motivation she installed in me to be my best in becoming a great teacher which led me to achieve QTS.

Fatma Ozkocak, School Direct Trainee

What our teachers say about us...

e-Qualitas is an outstanding training provider for anyone who is looking at starting their journey into becoming a teacher. They provide their trainees with support via email and telephone, and direct you to lots of helpful resources which help trainees to reflect on their daily practice and become a better teacher.

James Cook, Teaching Apprenticeship Trainee

What our teachers say about us...

I am pleased with all the aspects of the course including booking as well as the cost of the course. E-learning modules were easy to follow which explained clearly with examples. The course provided an opportunity to update my subject knowledge in maths and equip me to take on more responsibility in teaching.

Suganthiny Krishnakanthan , Subject Knowledge Enhancement Course student

What our teachers say about us...

I recently engaged in the 12 week SKE Maths course delivered by e-Qualitas. Successful completion of this course was a condition of taking up a place on a PGCE degree course. I initially felt that this was a stressful proposition, but I should not have worried as e-Qualitas make the process very simple.

Lesley-Ann Thorburn, Subject Knowledge Enhancement Course student

What our teachers say about us...

Everyone I have come in contact with from e-Qualitas has been extremely helpful, so I have had an excellent experience so far. I have taken part in two zoom meetings discussing e-track and the Pre-ITT activities, the meetings were informative and put my mind at ease so I could get on with the work I needed to complete. I look forward to continuing my apprenticeship journey with e-Qualitas.

Nina Commons, Teaching Apprentice Trainee

What our teachers say about us...

I have found Rose to be very helpful as a consultant. She always responds very quickly and is always able to answer any questions or queries I have. The communications with the team at the Teaching Apprenticeship programme, in general, have been great. The webinars have been particularly useful and informative.

Doug Fanning, Teaching Apprenticeship Trainee

What our teachers say about us...

Rose was absolutely fantastic in every step of the way when dealing with both my school and myself, every question was answered quickly and the zoom consultation she held with my school was really the reason why my school went ahead with taking me on in the first place. I also would not be training to be a teacher right now if she had not sent an email to my school offering the courses.

Harry Lawrence, Teaching Apprenticeship Trainee

What our teachers say about us...

Rose as a consultant - extremely helpful. She provides you with everything you need to know and more. Rose will put you in contact with the correct people if she does not know the answer to your question. If it was not for Rose, I wouldn’t be where I am now on this course.

Lauren Spall, Teaching Apprenticeship Trainee

What our teachers say about us...

You have been extremely helpful and very efficient at responding to an email which has made the application process easier. You have been very friendly and have managed to answer all questions I have asked. You are a credit to the company.

Laura Duck, Teaching Apprenticeship Trainee

What our teachers say about us...

Rose has been a friendly and extremely helpful consultant who has gone out of her way to help me choose the right route to train as a teacher. She has been prompt in replying to my emails and has been reliable when I have asked for more information. I am excited to start my training this September and feel confident that Rose will still be there to support me if I need her.

Holly Peck, Teacher of Psychology, Hampton School

What our teachers say about us...

The candidates that have been put forward are all of a very high calibre. There is obviously a sound and robust selection process before they reach me which makes the whole process much easier and purposeful. The candidates have been so superior to other candidates from other training providers that we have stopped using the other providers where possible. We aim to continue to work with TAP and EQ to this end.
