School Direct

For a September 2019 start, applications open in October 2018. Applications are via UCAS. School Direct (tuition fee) is a training route into teaching where trainees get high quality training and experience through UCL Institute of Education or London Metropolitan University and at two placement schools. Training teachers of the future who will inspire future learners to excel is key for ensuring individuals and the wider communities grow and thrive. We encourage applicants from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences to share our journey to education excellence.

School Direct

Graduate Teaching Apprenticeship 

We also offer an apprenticeship programme for those who are currently employed in a school and have teaching assistant, or similar experience. Graduate Teaching Apprenticeships are a school-led route into teaching at both primary and secondary stages. Application is via UCAS.
