The Rowans AP Academy

Inspiring change for a brighter future

Initial Teacher Training

At The Rowans we are committed to ensuring that our pupils have an outstanding education and therefore that teachers have every professional opportunity to access and engage with quality training, professional development and CPD.

We welcome student teachers on whatever route they are pursuing to achieve qualified teacher status, whether it is for a block practice or a taster day.

We are proud to be members of The Medway Teaching School Alliance, which provides school based learning opportunities with exceptional levels of support and guidance for all trainee teachers.  At The Rowans we have a proven track record in training and professional development and all our trainees will receive the highest level of continual support throughout their training. This covers all aspects of teaching life from behaviour management skills, subject knowledge, professional enrichment, AEN, inclusion and pastoral care. All students have the opportunity to work closely with an experienced mentor and will become part of the school’s shared vision and ethos.
