Our teaching school is committed to building capacity to support initial teacher education and future leaders. Currently we train teachers in partnership with Kingston University.
School Direct offers 2 types of training places:
- School Direct training programme – open to all graduates, and is funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee, who may receive a bursary from the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL)
- School Direct training programme (salaried) – is principally aimed at graduates with 3 or more years’ work experience.The trainee is employed as an unqualified teacher by a school and their salary is subsidised and training costs for qualified teacher status (QTS) covered by the NCTL.
