*Why study School Direct at Middlesex University?
The School Direct Training programme is available to high-quality graduates and our partnership schools offer places on both the tuition fee route and the salaried route. The tuition-fee route means you will pay your own tuition fees. There is no salary with this route.
At Middlesex, all School Direct programmes are closely aligned to the PGCE routes, meaning you will benefit from the provision of a range of high-quality central training, delivered by research-leaders and academics, who are widely published across disciplines such as multilingualism, diversity and childhood development.
All of our School Direct programmes provide the opportunity to gain a postgraduate qualification, which can be used towards a Masters award in the future. This will enable you to develop your skills for teaching and for understanding the interrelationship between learning and teaching, as you develop into a critically reflective practitioner. Our Primary School Direct programme is aligned with the PGCert Teaching qualification.
Our extensive history of delivering leading education courses ensures that you will benefit from the guidance of expert tutors who bring a wealth of professional experience to their teaching.
*What will you study on the School Direct (QTS)?
As a school-led route the great majority of your time will be spent in your training school, and the content and focus of many aspects of the training programme will be targeted to meet your individual needs, by utilising the resources of the school and their alliance partners. In addition, at Middlesex you will also benefit from access to the University's extensive resources, including those provided by the library and student support services.
The Middlesex School Direct programme provides you with a series of subject enhancement sessions, and a programme of professional studies which will be run at the University. These may include sessions which:
*Allow you to visit a variety of partnership schools and non-formal educational sites to enhance learning in specialist areas.
*Provide you with opportunities to enhance your knowledge and pedagogy of your subject, or specialist areas of the curriculum.
*Develop your understanding of key contemporary issues within education, such as those around inclusion or EAL and SEND provision in schools.
