Train to Teach

About School Direct/Apprenticeships

We pride ourselves in providing outstanding support to our trainees both through School Direct and Apprenticeships with 100% pass rate for 19/20.  We are exceptionally proud of our network of talented and experienced mentors within our schools all being supported themselves by Lead mentors.  Please see our film below to hear from our students. 


Our new partnership with Equalitas has enabled our schools to take advantage of their apprenticeship levy both for Local Authority schools and academies. To see a full list of opportunities available please see click here.  

We are currently offering places via the tuition fee route and salaried route.

Tuition Fee Route

The tuition fee route into teacher training generally attracts some level of bursary depending on what you want to teach and your degree qualification. You do not have to be a recent graduate to receive a bursary.

You pay tuition fees, either from student finance, your savings or your bursary, and at the end of the course you will either receive a PCGE or 60 credits towards a Master’s as well as qualified teacher status (QTS).

For 2020 entry we will be recruiting:

  • Primary General – Please see our course directory for details fo recruiting schools. 
  • Secondary – we are looking for a wide variety of subjects - Please see our course directory for details fo recruiting schools. 

The Salaried Route

In the salaried School Direct programme you will be paid a wage whilst you train.

We will be recruiting Secondary English teachers only on the salaried route.


We are recruiting a small number of apprentices in various subjects.  These are Postgraduate Salaried positions which incur no fees to the student.  If you are interested in finding out more please click here >
