The Ashford Teaching Alliance (ATA) has a group of partner schools offering high quality teacher training.

Brockhill Park Performing Arts College is the lead school for teacher training for the Alliance.

Dover Grammar School for Boys is a partner school and is located in Dover, on the Kent coast.

We have salaried and non-salaried places (some with generous bursaries) dependant on your skills, experience and subject.

The subjects we are currently offering for School Direct placements are:

Art & Design
Religious Education

Trainees will have the opportunity to work with other ATA students as part of the extended programme of training.

This is a school-based training programme with a taught programme of study by an HEI provider. We offer these courses with Christ Church University and also Equalitas. The ATA has a strong partnership with our HEI providers ensuring high quality of academic and work place training provision.

Training in the lovely county of Kent, with good road and rail links, provides the opportunity to have easy access to London, mainland Europe and other towns and cities in Kent.
