Stour Vale School Direct provides a unique, high-quality teacher training experience for prospective Primary and Secondary teachers via School Direct Initial Teacher Training courses. We are an alliance of schools based across the West Midlands that work closely together in collaboration with local universities to recruit and train the teachers and school leaders of the future.
With an exciting and comprehensive training programme that delivers up-to-date pedagogy alongside proven and practical skills for use in the classroom, our vision is to ensure all trainees are given the best possible start to their teaching career. Experienced mentors guide trainees through the course and ensure that their time with us is challenging, rewarding and enjoyable!
We work closely with a number of schools across Dudley, Sandwell, Wolverhampton, Birmingham, and South Staffordshire as part of our School Direct partnership. For an up-to-date list of our partnership schools, please visit: (https://www.svat.org.uk/train-to-teach/our-partner-schools/)
Our courses are accredited by the University of Worcester, Newman University and Haybridge Alliance SCITT (c/o Birmingham City University), and award a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with QTS to all successful trainees.
