Data Use and Retention Policy

We use data collected through our online Trainee Teacher enquiries form to offer guidance to prospective trainee teachers, about the teacher training options available at Reigate College (and affiliated educational providers).

The data is used to advise candidates about suitable trainee teacher vacancies if they become available.

We collect name, town/area of residence, subject and university graduated from/in (if relevant), email address, telephone number, preferred starting year and training route, how they heard about teacher training opportunities at Reigate College and if they would like to receive trainee teacher job alerts.

Data will be retained for up to two years.

The data will only be used for the purposes of offering guidance, alerting candidates to suitable trainee teacher vacancies, or Marketing purposes such as analysing the effectiveness of promotional work with feeder universities.

Which Initial Teacher Training route is best for me?

Navigating your way around the possible initial teacher training (ITT) options can be difficult to get to grips with, which is why we suggest completing the form above, to instigate a one-to-one discussion with Reigate College’s Head of Initial Teacher Training.

Registering your interest in this way, also means you’ll then receive job alerts, when trainee teacher vacancies become available.

Graduate Trainee Teacher: Earn as you train!

Reigate College’s two-year Graduate Trainee Teacher contract, leading to a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (ProfGCE Level 6) is the preferred route for the majority of the College’s own trainee teachers.

This is because rather than clocking up additional debt, you’ll be able to earn as you train. Successful candidates are offered a two-year training contract, a salary of up to £21,150 per annum, with course fees worth £6,000 over two years paid for by the College. This is a total two-year package worth up to £48,300 (as at January 2023).

Graduate Trainee Teacher vacancies are typically advertised between January and June – see our current Graduate Trainee Vacancies.

If appointed, the two year ProfGCE route allows you to:

  • Acquire a nationally recognised post-16 teacher training qualification accredited by the University of Brighton.
  • Teach a subject you are really passionate about (at A Level or equivalent) to students who are engaged with learning.
  • Gain teaching experience from the start.
  • Be allocated your own Mentor whose role will be to support you throughout the two year course.
  • Be in an extremely good position to be offered a permanent job at the end of the two years.
  • The qualification can also provide a route into teaching in 11-18 schools if you achieve QTLS (Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status) after completing the PGCE see

Should a suitable trainee vacancy not be available at the time you’re looking, other options can be discussed with our Head of Initial Teacher Training.

See our current Graduate Trainee Vacancies.

Vacancies are usually posted January to June.
