Course summary

About this course

LJMU's school-centric Salaried School Direct programme leads to Qualified Teacher Status at Primary or Secondary level, funds your teacher training and pays a salary.

  • Earn whilst you learn on this school-centric initial teacher training programme
  • Train to teach from within a school setting and be involved in school life from the first day of term
  • Follow a curriculum developed and delivered in partnership with outstanding local schools
  • Learn from expert teachers
  • Prepare for a career as an innovative and creative teacher in an excellent school

School Direct is a route into teaching featuring a school-centred approach. As a School Direct (salaried) trainee, you will be employed in a school while you train and will receive a salary from your school (the amount paid is linked to the unqualified teacher pay scale which may be enhanced by schools for some subject areas). The school will also cover the cost of your training to become a qualified teacher.

This programme is usually open to graduates with three years' work experience post graduation. Schools can, however, choose to accept applications from candidates with less work experience to attract high-quality applicants in hard-to-fill subjects, such as Mathematics and Physics. This route is ideal if you are considering a career change, but you must apply with a school willing to support you and to employ you whilst you train. If you are interested in the Salaried route, please contact the Lead School to discuss your application, before you apply.

School Direct is offered via a series of school consortia. Each consortium has a Lead School, which works in partnership with LJMU to develop their training programme. While all of the training is based on a framework agreed with the University, each School Direct programme is unique and you are advised to check full details of training and requirements on the Lead School’s web pages and on their UCAS Teacher Training profiles.

Assessment

How learning is monitored on your programme

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic.

A variety of assessment methods are used during the course including: critical reflections on practice, literature review, small scale research projects and design and analysis of learning experiences.

During your training, you will monitor your progression towards achieving Qualified Teachers Status (QTS) and will need to maintain an appropriate professional development portfolio to support this. A final assessment will be based on observation of your teaching practice and the evidence base that you develop during training.
