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.

All applications are made through UCAS which opens on 8 October for applications to train in 2020-21..

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.
