School Direct

For a September 2020 start, applications open in October 2019. 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.
