Initial Teacher Training.

Want to be a teacher, passionate about children, want to be supported throughout? Train with us!

School Direct

School Direct enables graduates to develop close links with local schools and real first hand school experience as well as receiving academic and university support whilst training to teach at primary or secondary level.

We have a strong tradition of supporting trainees and are building on our skills, knowledge and expertise.

Currently we are supporting a number of trainees on placement.

We are working with SAF (Sharnbrook Academy Federation).

Follow the link to the UCAS website for further details and to make your application if you are committed to becoming a teacher.

Interested in training to teach primary or secondary pupils?

Our School Direct programmes (salaried and non-salaried) will be live on the UCAS website shortly. If you have a colleague with a degree who may wish to qualify as a teacher please do signpost them to our Alliance teacher training programmes. All training happens locally in our Alliance Schools.

We are happy to discuss any queries with you.
