School Direct is a school-based teacher training programme. School Direct trainees spend the majority of the training year in placements within Delta Academies and also attend Leeds Beckett University for frequent days during the training year.
As a Delta Academies School Direct trainee, you will:
Be supported by outstanding teachers, have a school-based mentor and an academic tutor from the university who will be an expert specialist in the field. All those involved in your training are dedicated to your development towards becoming a high-quality reflective practitioner.
Gain a PGCE which includes qualified teacher status and can be used as the first third of a master’s degree (60 credits) if you wish to continue with this accredited professional development in the early part of your career.
Benefit from high-quality sessions with other trainees across Delta Academies Trust to develop your knowledge and application of effective strategies that underpin learning and achievement in the classroom.
Utilise outstanding, current teachers and school leaders to lead taught sessions, ensuring you learn from those who are current teachers and school leaders.
Benefit from high-quality sessions with other PGCE students at the university where research-informed practice and theoretical underpinning of classroom practice will be shared and critiqued.
Benefit from a dedicated School Direct team to offer support throughout the training year and beyond with many trainees remaining with Delta for their ECT year (Early Career Teacher).
Course fees for 2022 to 2023 are £9,250. You may be eligible for a student loan or bursary. Visit (https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/) for more information about funding your training.
