Overview

Key facts of the School Direct Initial Teacher Training (salaried) programme offered by the Liverpool John Moores University:

  • Earn whilst you learn on this school-centric initial teacher training programme
  • Train to teach from within a school setting and be involved in school life from the first day of term
  • Follow a curriculum developed and delivered in partnership with outstanding local schools
  • Learn from expert teachers
  • Prepare for a career as an innovative and creative teacher in an excellent school

School Direct is a route into teaching featuring a school-centred approach. As a School Direct (salaried) trainee, you will be employed in a school while you train and will receive a salary from your school (the amount paid is linked to the unqualified teacher pay scale which may be enhanced by schools for some subject areas). The school will also cover the cost of your training to become a qualified teacher.

This programme is open to graduates with three years' work experience post graduation. Schools can, however, choose to accept applications from candidates with less work experience to attract high-quality applicants in hard-to-fill subjects, such as Mathematics and Physics. This route is ideal if you are considering a career change.

Career

LJMU has an excellent employability record with 96% of our postgraduates in work or further study six months after graduation. Our applied learning techniques and strong industry connections ensure our students are fully prepared for the workplace on graduation and understand how to apply their knowledge in a real world context.

Trainees on the School Direct (salaried) programme are employed as unqualified teachers during the period of their training. Many schools are seeking to fill a vacant post at the end of the course, though there is no guarantee of employment. 

During your training there will be ample opportunities for engagement with relevant local employment organisations including schools and teacher recruitment agencies through on-campus events.

You will be encouraged to join the relevant professional association for your subject or area of study, providing the opportunity to engage with wider networks of teachers and others interested in your chosen area.

You will also be able to network with recent alumni and local professional communities.

Programme Structure

School based training involves the preparation and delivery of learning sequences and lessons to small groups and whole classes of learners, with expectations and workload increasing during the course. The course is delivered through a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars, interactive workshops, group discussion and reflection, problem solving and micro-teaching. We also make full use of the University’s Virtual Learning Environment.There is a real focus on providing you with the skills and knowledge required. Tutorial support is an important part of the process and you will receive a personalised service that will enable you to set targets and achieve to your highest potential.
