About the course

The School Direct Training Programme (salaried)

This year, St. John's CE Primary School (Provider code 15D) intends to offer 10 school direct (salaried) placements to graduates. This path into teaching is a great way to gain the qualifications and practical skills you need to become a teacher. It enables those who have a degree to combine teacher training with actually doing and learning on the job, focusing on the 'Teachers' Standards' and leading to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). These places are School Direct only.

All our partnership schools are in the Epping Forest and Harlow areas and are accessible by Central Line Tube, Overground or major bus routes.

This course will be based in one school for the majority of the training period with a second placement in a contrast school setting. Part of the course is theory based and there will be formal training days held mainly in the training room at The Alderton Junior School in Loughton, Essex. Trainees are awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) upon completion of the programme.

Our Teacher Educators and Tutors are excellent teachers that attend training and meet regularly to further develop their skills and enable them to pass on feedback, coaching and classroom observation.

Your professional responsibilities will include assessing, planning and teaching the primary curriculum. Trainees will be assessed through regular lesson observations, achievement against the Teachers' Standards and a limited number of assignments (School Summary & Action Research).

School Direct requires a commitment of 5 days a week for 10 months from September to July. Trainees are expected to participate fully in the everyday life of the schools in which they train and, therefore, occasional evening or extra-curricular events will be obligatory.
