Initial Teacher Training
In collaboration with approx 60 partner schools and three universities we will be training 80 trainees in 2019-20. We hope to recruit well over 100 School Direct trainees for 2020-21.
Please click tabs for our Primary and Secondary course pages but be aware that these are in the process of being updated. The vacancy lists have been updated and are live but the course documents accessed through the tables are not yet available.
All applications are made through UCAS and we expect UCAS to open for the 2020-21 cohort in October (date not yet announced by UCAS).

If you are a school considering involvement in School Direct with us, please click on the relevant school tab above, to understand more about why this is so popular with our schools; its particular advantage in terms of recruitment; what funding you receive; and what’s involved.
Other training routes: Many schools are currently being sent emails from private organisations offering a whole range of different training routes. We can look into any of these on your behalf. We are building up a resource comparing the advantages and disadvantages of different routes including looking closely at teacher apprenticeships.
