What is School Direct?

School Direct is a school-led teacher training programme.  School Direct courses are designed by a group of schools in partnership with a university.  A School Direct course lasts a year and you will train in at least two schools.

Why choose School Direct?

This course offers a brilliant option if you want to train and learn ‘on the job’, and you shouldn’t worry about being thrown in at the deep end. You’ll be part of a team from the very start, receiving intensive support from experienced teachers and mentors. That means you won’t be teaching classes unsupported until the school thinks you’re ready.

 Why choose us?

We are committed to the recruitment and retention of high quality teachers in order to meet the needs of our locality.  We have a strong partnership of schools in Hampshire and our diverse alliance of schools has been involved in delivering high quality teacher-training for many years.   

 There are a number of benefits to SDs if you register with the National College for Teaching and Leadership, so I would advise you to do that. You will receive a helpful step-by-step guide to becoming a teacher; email updates with important news on teacher training, funding and events in your area; the option to call the team of UK-based teaching experts for advice and information on how you can interact with NCTL and even get your questions answered via Facebook and Twitter!
You are probably aware that with Schools Direct being a work based route into teaching, it is vitally important that you have gained some good, meaningful experience during your time in primary schools. Applicants without this experience generally find the rigorous interview process difficult and fail to secure a place on Schools Direct.

If you would like to find out more about it, about Schools Direct, or would like to arrange a visit to North Waltham Primary School please do not hesitate to make contact with me.
