About the training provider

Our School Direct programme is firmly embedded within a unique group of Primary Schools who are within the Ouseburn Learning Trust or the Gosforth Schools’ Trust . All of our schools are conveniently situated in close proximity to Newcastle City Centre.

We work collaboratively to empower young people to excel as individuals and contribute to society. These outcomes are achieved by the outstanding quality of teaching which is responsive in meeting the individual needs of our children.

Successful trainees will achieve:

  • Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)
  • a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)

About the accredited body

As well as immersion in the life of the school, students attend days at the Coach Lane Campus over the course of the year. These sessions provide the opportunity to be part of a professional learning community and to engage with some of the wider pedagogical and social theories around education. Based upon the specific training needs of the student, Northumbria University works with the school to provide personalised input, drawing on expertise both within Northumbria and in school. Students are assessed in school, as well as being required to show their level of understanding through a combination of assignments.

Training with disabilities and other needs

We have the flexibility to place trainees in the best location to suit their requirements, safe in the knowledge that all schools have in place robust policies and systems to support disabilities and additional needs.
