Get into Teaching

  • Do you have a passion for learning?

  • Do you fancy a change in career or are returning to work?

  • Do you enjoy working with young people?

Brookfield Community School is a good school with a strong tradition of training teachers. We work in partnership with a range of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) providers on the SCITT and PGCE routes including; the Wildern SCITT and the Universities of Chichester, Southampton and Portsmouth to train new teachers in a range of subjects.

We are looking for the next generation of teachers in the area who are committed to the provision of outstanding teaching and learning. Those embarking on their teacher training year come from a variety of academic and workplace backgrounds, with varying degrees of experience, but ultimately they are passionate about their subject, life-long learning skills and working with young people.

If you are looking for your next challenge, and are considering joining the teaching profession, we would love to hear from you to invite you to one of our Get Into Teaching Events. We have a range of experienced staff who can help you to understand the various routes into teaching, the working life of a teacher, the bursaries available and the application process. We can also support school based experiences needed to secure any teacher training position. The next round of applications for teacher training nationwide opens at the end of October through UCAS, and bespoke support can be offered for those considering training

The teaching profession looks for the highest quality candidates, so you will need to hold an undergraduate degree awarded by a UK higher education provider, or a recognised equivalent qualification. You will have achieved a standard equivalent to grade C or above, in the GCSE examinations in English and mathematics.

If you are planning for a teaching career, a valuable stepping stone into the profession can be to take on a Cover Supervisor or Learning Support Assistant for a year or more to develop your understanding and confidence in a secondary school setting. This can be an extremely useful experience, and through our close links with Initial Teacher Training providers could be a supported process to get to a teaching career. If you feel this is a preferred route please visit our vacancies section of the website to see current positions available.

If you are ready to join the most rewarding of careers, register your interest by contacting us at and we will keep you updated of our events this year that can support your application.
