What is School Direct and why should I choose it?


School Direct offers a unique training route to achieving qualified teacher status (QTS) and aims to attract the highest quality candidates. School Direct was created to:

  • Help schools train their own staff

  • Decide who they want to recruit & train

  • Take more control of Initial Teacher training

  • Deploy the successful trained NQT in their network of schools


Applications for School Direct are currently OPEN. To find out more about next year's programme more information can be found on the School Direct website or by contacting Anna Herdman at aherdman@stb.bwcet.com
