e-Qualitas are working in partnership with Bishopshalt School in Uxbridge, who are currently recruiting for trainee teachers to start in September 2024.

Bishopshalt are seeking trainee English, Maths, Science, PE and History teachers to begin their training, while employed at the school, from September 2024.

Bishopshalt – located in West-Drayton, Hillingdon – is a  school steeped in history and tradition, having opened in 1907 and occupying the site and grounds of a former Victorian mansion.

Today the school is led by Headteacher Liam McGillicuddy, who embodies the schools values: “Love Learning”, “Show Kindness”, “Build Character”, “Chase Brilliance” and “Bright Futures”. In this short video with Liam, he provides an introduction to the school, its students and a description of what they are seeking in a trainee teacher.

With an Ofsted rating of ‘Good’ (2021), Bishopshalt offers excellent opportunities for career development for teachers completing their training while employed there.


“The students at this school are phenomenal. It’s a really exciting place to teach. The students here are really special because they want to learn – they’re sponges. They’re polite, appreciative, they take ownership of their learning and they want to engage with you (the teacher) as a human being. Bishopshalt is a rewarding place to teach, with a rewarding group of students to work with.”

Bishopshalt Deputy Headteacher, Megan Hubbard

What our teachers say about us...

I have most enjoyed the deep-dives in each of the subjects. You've got all the of the expertise of the Subject Leads, and tutors - you can go and ask them questions. It is a culture and an environment where you have all the expertise and experience at your fingertips that you could need.

Sian - Primary Teacher - e-Qualified ✓

What our teachers say about us...

As part of the teacher training programme, so many doors and windows of knowledge are opening. Last term's focus was on assessment, which has been transformative for me. I am now able to look at what my children know, what they need to know and then adapt my practice based on the knowledge they've demonstrated. It's made me a better teacher, because I can adapt my practice to suit everybody.

This has been a great, supportive programme because I get the freedom to come up with plans and then see them in action with my students. I couldn't ask for a better experience.

Kellie - Secondary English Teacher - e-Qualified ✓

What our teachers say about us...

I'm really lucky at my school that I have a fantastic mentor and really supportive science staff, so I am getting on-the-job advice all the time. Talking to other trainees about what has worked is very useful, because they are at the same level of experience as me and their advice is great too.

What schools say about us...

Working in partnership with e-Qualitas has allowed us to put into place a system to support new members of staff in school. It's about focusing on developing individual teachers and supporting them through the teacher training programme.

The in-person training sessions have been great and have fostered a brilliant sense of community among trainees, who are from different parts of the country. We've had a lovely mix of practical and theory - enabling us to put into practice everything we've been discussing.

Shikiera - Primary Teacher - e-Qualified ✓

What our teachers say about us...

My subject knowledge has definitely improved from working with the Subject Leads; building my understanding of substantive disciplinary knowledge. I feel I am able to talk to the Subject Leads after each training session to discuss each training session in more detail. My subject lead has been so helpful with my learning sequences.

Masooma - Primary Teacher - e-Qualified ✓

What our teachers say about us...

The workload on the training programme is demanding, though it is manageable.The training and communication that you receive from e-Qualitas makes the workload both acceptable and convenient. Thumbs up, I am looking forward!

Bugra - Secondary Maths Teacher - e-Qualified ✓

What our teachers say about us...

My teaching skills have improved so much during the training year. My tutor and my mentor worked really hard with me, and I am really thankful for the efforts they made to make me the teacher I am today. My Subject Lead taught me so much, for example how to scaffold a lesson - making sure the whole class is engaged with tasks.

Amara - Secondary Maths Teacher - e-Qualified ✓

What schools say about us...

One of the most important things we do is appoint the right members of staff, with the right mindset and ability to form relationships with young people. The brilliant concept of the Teaching Apprenticeship Programme is that you can identify talent in members of staff currently within school.
