 School Direct Salaried places

School direct (salaried) is an employment-based route into teaching supported by a National College of Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) grant. There are no tuition fees payable on this training route. You would contribute to the cost of your salary by undertaking a teaching commitment each week. Salaried applicants would be expected to have a great deal of experience of working in a school and be ready to do some planning and teaching from day one.

Any salaried trainee wishing to study for PGCE (in addition to QTS) would be expected to pay the costs involved which are currently £1500.00

Salaried trainees are not eligible for a training bursary and cannot access student finance.

We do have  salaried places for 2018-2019.
