We are a training provider for the School Direct programme. This one-year programme enables primary and secondary schools to recruit and select their own trainees, with the expectation that these trainees will go on to work within the school, or group of schools, in which they are trained.
Trainees spend the majority of their time within their schools, but receive academic teacher training through the university.
Want to offer a placement or the Cert-Ed course?
If you are based in the south-east and would like further details about offering placements, or if you are interested in offering a Cert-Ed course in your college, contact Alexandra Fry 01273 643397 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are two separate School Direct training options:
School Direct Training Programme is available to high-quality graduates. Trainees may be eligible for a bursary or scholarship of up to £30,000 to support them while they train.
School Direct Training Programme (salaried) is an employment-based route available to high-quality graduates with at least three years’ work experience who are paid a salary while they train.
A number of schools have chosen the University of Brighton as their School Direct partner. Trainees are awarded QTS on successful completion of the programme; those on the non-salaried programme are also awarded a PGCE.
