Train to Teach

Train to Teach via School Direct

School Direct is a new initiative that enables prospective trainees an opportunity to choose the group of schools they would like to be trained in. School Direct is a new school-based Initial Teacher Training route, leading to a PGCE with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) and Masters level credits. Our school direct route is delivered in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University.

Benefits of School Direct

  • You will be able to train in schools learning from high quality practitioners.
  • You spend more time on school placements.
  • All places will lead to qualified teacher status (QTS)
