Teacher Training

What Do Our Trainees Say?

Through this employment based route into teaching, I have had access to outstanding mentors who have provided excellent support, guidance and encouragement. I feel extremely privileged to have trained in such a remarkable school and to have been so well prepared for my NQT year.”

“The School Direct Teacher Training Programme has been so rewarding. Within our partnership I have been able to observe outstanding teacher practice, develop a strong support network with fellow trainees, and receive relevant teaching from experts in their field. The mentors are incredibly supportive and, most importantly, inspire you to be the best you can be.”

“I chose the School Direct route into teaching because I wanted the challenge of extending my own skills whilst being a member of a school team. I knew I was passionate about children and their early experiences, however, School Direct went beyond my expectations. The year is an exciting journey in which you find out so much about your own character through specialists, leaders, mentors and friends that champion you to thrive to become the very best teacher you can be for a successful career.”
