Train to Teach & Internships

Sacred Heart High School is a National Teaching School and we coordinate the West London Teaching School Alliance (WLTSA) from our Teaching School Office. 


Part of our role is to manage the process of recruiting trainee teachers for approx 60 primary and secondary schools across London on PGCE & QTS programmes run in partnership with Mary’s University, Roehampton University and UCL. 

For details of all 150 WLTSA teacher training vacancies, please go to the WLTSA website and use the Initial Teacher Training tab to then access our primary and secondary course pages.


We also provide paid teaching internships for 4 weeks in the summer in seven of our partner schools, for those who are considering whether to train to teach mathematics or physics. Further information and an application form is available on the WLTSA website, Internships tab.


Any queries regarding WLTSA teacher training programmes (including those at Sacred Heart) should be sent to the Teaching School Office at Sacred Heart (Alex Dijkhuis)


We run a series of information sessions throughout the academic year for those hoping to apply for teacher training.  These includes a  presentation explaining the significance of the different qualifications and of different types of teacher training provider; how to search for courses; entry requirements, finance and top tips on making a successful application.

We can also answer queries and talk you through our vacancy list, advising you about your best options.  There is absolutely no requirement for you to attend this session - we just want to be available to explain how it all works and to answer questions if you have them.

The information sessions are held every two weeks at Sacred Heart High School,  212 Hammersmith Road London W6 7DG.
