What is School Direct?

School Direct is a highly successful school based route into teaching. As a School Direct trainee training with St John’s C of E  Primary and our ITT provider, Teaching London: LDBS SCITT, you will learn alongside inspiring, passionate teachers with outstanding pedagogical skills. We will train you to become successful, confident, effective teachers, well equipped to teach in a dynamic and vibrant school. During your training will be employed as an unqualified teacher, either at this school or in one of our partnership schools. You will undertake ‘on the job’ teacher training in school for the majority of your time, alongside centre-based input from teaching London, enabling you to gain the necessary qualifications and practical skills required to become a teacher.

Successful School Direct trainees will gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with the option to achieve a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), worth 60 Masters level credits. Find more info by clicking here.
