About Ark:  

Ark is a charity that aims to transform children’s lives through education. In the UK, the strongest predictor of how a child will do at school continues to be what their parents do for a living – but why should this be the accepted status quo? By working in our network at one of our 39 schools, you will be directly making a positive impact on young people’s lives through high-quality teaching and thoughtful consideration of all backgrounds and needs, making educational equity a reality.  


About Ark Teacher Training:  

Ark Teacher Training (ATT) is a school-based programme offering the perfect mixture of theory and classroom practice to develop you into the best teacher you can be.

We are very proud to have just received our second outstanding rating from Ofsted in all categories! There are only a few ITTs in the UK that can say the same. Alongside this, our programme is also incredibly supportive and bespoke, as you will see below.  


Key responsibilities:  

  • To engage in daily professional development activities  

  • To plan, resource and deliver lessons to the highest possible standard that ensure learning and progress of all pupils

Inclusion and Diversity:  

At Ark Teacher Training, we have a particular responsibility to advocate for diversity and inclusion in teacher training to make a positive difference to the lives of our pupils.

We have therefore taken steps to address our own internal bias and consider how our recruitment practices are impacting diversity.
