School Direct

Bishop Grosseteste University is working within partnership with Schools Direct to be able to support our students in an alternative route into teaching. Schools Direct offers more school-led training within local schools around the county.

Programmes generally last for one year and financial support is available throughout your training. Successful completion of the programme will lead to the award of qualified teacher status (QTS) and many courses also award a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) or masters-level credits on completion.

How it Works

You will be based in one of the schools in the partnership and you’ll also be taught by BG, attending lectures and seminars to bolster your hands-on experience with theories.  In some cases you’ll find out which school you’ll be placed in when you apply or are interviewed, but this isn’t always possible. There are primary and secondary places available all over England – the numbers vary across subjects and age groups, depending on the number of schools in each partnership. Some schools may consider part-time placements – you’ll need to approach a school directly if you’d like to be considered for a part-time placement.

Options

There are two School Direct training options:

  1. School Direct Training Programme – Although your training is based in a school, they’re not your employers, and in many ways your training will be similar to training programmes in universities and colleges. You’ll pay fees but you might be eligible for funding through tuition fee loans, training bursaries or scholarships.
  2. Salaried School Direct Training Programme – This route allows you to train ‘on the job’ and is an employment-based route for high-quality experienced graduates with at least three years’ work experience. You will earn a salary while you train.
