WHAT IS SCHOOL DIRECT?
There are several routes into the teaching profession, these include School Direct, Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), under graduate degree courses, school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT) and Teach First.
It is important that trainees choose the right path for them. Elmridge Primary Teaching School Alliance offers the non-salaried School Direct route into teaching.
Elmridge's School Direct course is designed in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU). The course lasts for one year with trainees experiencing placements in two contrastingly different schools. Successful completion of the course results in qualified teacher status (QTS) and there is also the award of a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) and Master's-level credits.
Elmridge's alliance has a successful history of recruiting high quality trainee teachers with 100% successful completion rate and all trainees gaining successful employment in readiness for the start of the new school year.
