QTS (qualified teacher status) allows you to teach in state schools in England.

It may also allow you to teach in the EU, the EEA and Switzerland. You should check with the institution you’d like to teach in for confirmation. The status of QTS in these countries may change after the UK leaves the EU. Please check GOV.UK for updates.

To teach in the rest of the UK or internationally, you may wish to consider a ‘PGCE (or PGDE) with QTS’ qualification instead.

About the course

School Direct English at Simon Langton Girls' Grammar School:

The English School Direct teacher training programme at Simon Langton Girls' Grammar School allows student teachers to train on the job in a supportive and well-organised environment. We pride ourselves on our personalised professional development programme which will enable you to develop your strengths as a leader in the classroom.

We work together with Christchurch University to offer Qualified Teacher Status with the option of PGCE qualification (Post Graduate Certificate of Education).

You will spend the majority of your time at Simon Langton Girls' Grammar School. A contrasting secondary school placement will be organised for a 6 week period, a primary school for 5 days and you will spend 15 study days at Christchurch University.

Interview process

Potential applicants should apply through UCAS from October 2018.

Interviews will be held at Simon Langton Girls' Grammar School for the post of School Direct English.

How school placements work

Your main base school will be Simon Langton Girls' Grammar School where you will spend the majority of your time training on the job.

A 6 week alternative school placement will be organised for you during your training year. This is to provide a contrast to your experience so far at Simon Langton Girls' Grammar School. You will also complete 5 days in a primary school to aid your knowledge of the prior key stage and can also be organised by the school.

As we work with a range of schools in our partnership, it is very easy to organise a placement for you in a contrasting environment.

Fees

The course fees for 2019/2020 are as follows:

About the training provider

The Langton Schools' Alliance is working with Christchurch University to offer teacher training through the School Direct training programme. You can train as a secondary or primary teacher to gain QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) and there is an opportunity to complete a PGCE.

School Direct is a hands on, practical school based training programme which allows student teachers to work in their school from day 1. This ensures that you are able to work through an entire school year in your school and really feel part of the learning community.

We pride ourselves on offering superb support and training opportunities including individual subject and professional mentors, flexible time to manage workload, a range of schools for contrasting placements and high quality continued professional development.
