Our School Direct – Initial Teacher Training programme devised by local headteachers, in conjunction with Bath Spa University, places trainee teachers in the classroom for most of the year, working alongside experienced teachers to learn the skills of teaching “on the job”. This real teaching experience is supported by training held at both the University and The Partnership Trust.
Apply for your teacher training place with us through the government’s Apply for Teaching Training site.
We have vacancies for primary trainees and can also offer primary training with an SEND specialism – feel free to contact us for an informal chat to find out more details.
Applications for the course in 2022-23 are now closed. The application window for 2023-24 will reopen later in October 2022.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01761 412198.
We have been running our successful programme for eight years and have seen fantastic results along the way with all of our trainees securing teaching jobs after completion of their PGCE training year.
Below are comments from previous students
“What a great year! After 15 years of working in retail I can honestly say
this has been a great career change. I’ve loved every minute of it. Thank you!”
“What a fantastic year! The range of training available this year has been brilliant- from
DT to PE and phonics to SEND, it has all made me feel really prepared for my own class next year!”
“You have been so supportive, like a family to me.
Not only do I feel I chose the best course I could have, but I have now got a job within the trust.
I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon this course, I would 100% recommend the route and couldn’t be happier.”
“I’ve met such a wonderful bunch of people that were the biggest support throughout the year
(and I’m sure will be beyond this year!) I feel well prepared for my NQT year and am excited
for the years ahead.”
