Course summary

School Direct involves schools working in partnership with accredited teacher training institutions to offer training routes to Qualified Teacher Status for outstanding teachers. This course equips you with the knowledge and skills to teach across the primary age group (specialising in 3–7, 5–11 or 7–11 years). You'll develop an understanding of the National Curriculum and the learning needs of children, as well as the professional values you need to meet the demands of teaching. We offer two School Direct routes into teaching - a salaried programme for graduates with three years' career experience, who will be employed as unqualified teachers, and a non-salaried route where you pay tuition fees and work towards a PGCE (with other sources of funding available). Both routes lead to the recommendation of Qualified Teacher Status.

Placements are a core element of teacher training which enable our trainees to put theory into practice in a supportive environment. We are extremely lucky to work with a wide range of partners across London, Essex and Kent to support our trainees. We work closely with trainees when deciding on placements to ensure that trainees get the best training possible whilst on our programmes. Our strong partnerships ensure our trainees are well supported and have outstanding experiences whilst training with us.
