School Direct

We work with a number of primary and secondary schools in Greater Manchester to offer our trainees the School Direct route into teaching.


Why study here?

What to expect

School Direct provides schools with opportunities to select their own PGCE trainees. Schools can then offer their trainees permanent roles at the end of the training. However, there is no guarantee of employment.

As a School Direct trainee, you'll follow a modified version of the PGCE course structure. You may spend extra time in school before the PGCE starts.

All applications for Schools Direct are processed through the UCAS Teacher Training website.

We will then review your application with the lead school that you have selected. If your application is successful, the lead school will invite you to an interview.
