School Direct is school-led training course which gives you the chance to learn ‘on the job’ in a school. You work as part of the teaching team from day one learning from experienced, highly-skilled colleagues and immediately put your new skills into practice.


Our one year School Direct programme will allow successful trainees to achieve Qualified Teaching Status (QTS) as well as a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)


Our School Direct programme is run in partnership with Haybridge School Centred Based Initial Teacher Training and Birmingham City University. You work towards achieving a Primary Postgraduate Certificate of Education award (Level 7) which has a total of 60 Masters level credits plus a QTS qualification.
