Initial Teacher Training - School Direct
School Direct is an initial teacher training programme based in schools as opposed to university. Although trainees are released one day a week most of the training is in school. The idea of School Direct is to give trainee teachers a more ‘hands-on’ teaching experience than traditional university based routes into teaching. There are two School Direct programmes offered; these are fee paying and salaried. Both routes award qualified teacher status (QTS) at the end of the programme.

Why Train With Us?
At Sir John Lawes we have a long history of working with trainee teachers. Within the Scholars’ Education Trust our schools are fantastic places to train, work and learn. They provide a unique school-based learning opportunity in partnership with the Alban TSH. Our partnership’s vision is simple but powerful; to ensure the delivery of high quality initial teacher training that meets the needs of the local area.
Also, all partnership schools endeavour to create an environment in which staff, pupils and trainee teachers alike feel valued and supported. We have all worked with trainee teachers for many years and we fully recognise how much vibrancy, enthusiasm and drive they can offer our respective school communities.
Importantly, the partnership sees its staff as its most valuable resource and its schools have a proven track record in training and professional development. Our teachers are excellent practitioners and are eager to share their skills, knowledge and practice with the next generation of teachers.
