Our Lady and St. Edward’s Catholic Primary Teaching School has developed an exciting School Direct programme aimed at recruiting and training high quality aspiring primary school teachers.
Working in partnership with Liverpool Hope University, we provide our trainees with a strong school-centred postgraduate route into teaching but with the added benefit of studying for a Masters level for a Postgraduate Certificate as well.
Trainees on our School Direct programme will be allocated a school in our partnership, including faith, non-faith and nursery schools. The majority of time will be spent in a ‘home’ school with additional teaching in an ‘away’ school in the Partnership.
The taught element of our School Direct programme will be delivered by outstanding trainers from our teaching School partnership and Liverpool Hope University – Headteachers, NLEs, experienced consultants and class teachers. Working in partnership with Liverpool Hope University we are able to develop direct training that will have the academic and theoretical underpinning to allow trainees to become outstanding practitioners within the field of education.
This is an excellent route into teaching with us equipping our trainees with the experience and skills needed to become outstanding teachers.
We are seeking individuals who demonstrate and are able to apply the skills of organisation, flexibility, reflection, evaluation and action to all aspects of the course and their career. Enthusiastic individuals who are able to communicate effectively with pupils, colleagues and parents on a range of levels are essential to our partnership.
The School Direct programme offers an outstanding opportunity for our schools to recruit graduates of the highest calibre with the commitment to working in education and become the teachers and school leaders of the future.
School Direct gives us the chance to select and train our own outstanding teachers of the future.
