Throughout the year you will mostly be based in your host school, where you will experience life as a full-time member of teaching staff.
You will undertake a 6 week long second placement at another school in the Spring Term, which will offer you a contrasting experience. In addition, you will attend training at schools around Nottinghamshire and can experience teaching in a different phase, as well as special or hospital school experience, if desired.
You will be assigned a mentor in school who provide support throughout each week, including observations of you and other teachers to develop your teaching persona and strategies. As a member of staff at the school, you will attend meetings and training throughout the year to develop a rounded experience of life as a full time teacher.
Your colleagues will form an integral part of your training experience, offering support and an insight into the collaborative aspect of teaching, and you will become a key part of a teaching team. School Direct trainees will also undertake wider experiences such as participating in day and residential visits and seasonal events at school.
Ultimately, a School Direct training programme with us will offer you the opportunity to learn and apply an academic understanding of education and teaching while experiencing a full year as a working teacher. Our trainees enjoy this approach and feel well-prepared for their future careers.
