WHAT IS SCHOOL DIRECT TEACHER TRAINING?
School Direct (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 a school, or group of schools, that work closely with a university or school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT) consortium that certifies successful trainees. You’ll be based in a school, but will also be taught by the university, college, or SCITT that the school partners with. School Direct programmes are popular with students who are hoping to gain a position in their placement school following their training.
