How To Become A Teacher

Oakwood exists to create daily learning opportunities in an environment that is characterised by rigour and excellence. All Oakwood lessons must be learner-centred and our teachers are required to use well-researched techniques that significantly enhance learning. Each year, every Oakwood teacher commits to a tailor-made continual professional development path whose objectives are to enhance classroom skill, subject mastery and personal professional confidence.

All staff recruitment takes into account Oakwood Academy’s values, which are:

  • To focus on what matters in the provision of a quality education;
  • To maintain the highest levels of discipline in professional practice; and
  • To ensure the practice of reflective continual professional development.

The Academy’s culture is built on the understanding that teachers are the key driver of learning. As such, the entire organisation, at all levels, is committed to providing a supportive and flexible working environment for teaching staff. At Oakwood, we provide the space, tools and skills that teachers need to be the best that they can be. The “Oakwood teacher” is passionate about young people and learning, is internally motivated to improve their professional practice and is keen to sharpen their skills in the classroom.
