Where best to start but at the beginning! Enrolling on the school direct programme means you start in school on day 1 (but not teaching!), you are a member of the school staff and part of day to day life, and it’s important to experience the start of an academic year and new term with everyone else. It doesn’t compare to coming in during the spring term on a placement block!
You are fully supported, and you build your timetable up as the first term progresses, getting to know your classes and building relationships with the staff and students.
Teacher training – what’s involved?
To become a qualified teacher, you need to successfully complete teacher training. By doing so, you’ll achieve ‘qualified teacher status’ – or QTS, we also offer a PGCE worth 60 masters credits to enhance your learning and employability.
Bursaries of up to £26k are available to support your training
Life as a teacher offers you all the opportunities, training, support and rewards you need to develop and build a stimulating and successful career.
