About

The School Direct (Secondary) programme at Bishop Grosseteste University is school-led initial teacher training. School Direct is available in primary and secondary schools across England and offers a training route to achieving qualified teacher status (QTS).

Overview

Studying in this School Direct (Secondary) programme at Bishop Grosseteste University is a student-centred experience. Staff and students work together in a friendly and supportive atmosphere as part of an intimate campus community.

You will know every member of staff personally and feel confident approaching them for help and advice, and staff members will recognise you, not just by sight, but as an individual with unique talents and interests. We will be there to support you, personally and academically, from induction to graduation.

Careers & Further Study

The teaching profession has a well-structured career pathway which moves progressively from initial teacher training through to newly qualified (NQT) status to qualified teacher. Many continue to work in our partner schools, becoming mentors to our trainee teachers, pursing further study to full Masters and Doctoral level at BGU and taking on leadership roles including Headships.

Programme Structure

How you will be taught:

  • The course will include lectures, seminars, workshops, independent study, tutorials, school-based training and will recommend you for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
  • The university-based sessions are very much a starting point for the training undertaken in schools through observation and working alongside experienced teachers.

Experience in a relevant setting is useful as it will help you to make sure that you are aware of the role of a teacher in the twenty-first century. The course is intensive and demanding and you need to be aware of what a career in the teaching profession entails.

We encourage you to gain some experience in schools as this is a good starting point for you to gain an interview for the Secondary PGCE.
