Description

School Direct is a training route which allows you to work and study within a school of your choice while studying towards a postgraduate qualification (PGCE or PGDE) and Qualified Teacher Status.

NTU is pleased to be involved with the new School Direct programme.

School Direct is an innovative training route which allows you to choose the school in which you train with an intention, but no absolute guarantee, that they will employ you once you successfully graduate.

There are two types of training places:

  1. The School Direct Training Programme
    This is open to all graduates. You will pay tuition fees and may be eligible for a bursary from the National College for Teaching and Leadership - NCTL (formerly the Teaching Agency). Find out more about this course.
  2. The School Direct Training Programme (salaried)
    This is an employment-based route into teaching for high quality graduates with three or more years' career relevant experience. You will pay tuition fees and be employed as an unqualified teacher by a school who will pay you a salary.

The salaried option of the School Direct programme is ideal if you wish to bring your career experience to the field of teaching. Career changers can bring valuable real-world skills and knowledge to the classroom to inspire the next generation.

From the beginning you will be working within a school, learning and training in the classroom while supported by qualified teachers and mentors. You will also spend time studying at the University as you progress towards gaining a postgraduate qualification in education (PGCE or PGDE) and Qualified Teacher Status.

The salary you receive will be dependent on the school you apply to and the subject you wish to teach. However you will usually be paid as an unqualified teacher on point one or above of the unqualified teacher scale.

School Direct (salaried) places are offered by a school or group of schools in partnership with NTU. The schools involved have an excellent history of involvement in teacher training and a long history of supporting trainees to become confident and effective teachers.

You can apply to more than one school with this programme. You apply directly through UCAS. Interview and selection will be conducted by both staff from NTU’s School of Education and from the school.
