What is 'School Direct' teacher training?



School based (tuition fee) programmes allow you to learn on the job as you work towards your Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) recommendation. This non-salaried route is run by the University but with consistent school placement coordinated by a school, or group of schools, that work closely with a university (Sunderland University in this case). You’ll be based continuously in a school, but will also be taught by the university that the school partners with. These programmes are popular with students who are looking for a more 'hands on' experience and those hoping to gain a position in their placement school following their training.
