About the training provider
School Direct at Cornerstone allows the trainee the security of knowing that they will be spending the lion's share of their course working in effective schools alongside highly-trained and supportive teachers. The amount of time spent in class allows you to gain further experience of residential trips, training days, continuity through the academic year and a feeling of total inclusion as an important member of the teaching staff.
The Masters modules are taught through distance learning, requiring the trainee to be very well-organised and self-motivated. School Direct trainees are given one day of each week to complete their university tasks.
About the accredited body
We are leaders in Initial Teacher Education, consistently graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted and ranked 3rd amongst university providers of teacher training in the most recent Good Teacher Training Guide (2017).

PGCE trainees can access the support of a Wellbeing Services Welfare Caseworker to discuss concerns, talk through options for support or understand more about how the University Wellbeing Services may be able to help.
Alongside the support described above, every PGCE trainee is assessed by an Occupational Health provider as part of the admissions process to ensure they are fit to teach in a school setting. If the Occupational Health provider recommends any adjustments, the University’s Partnership Office will ensure you are placed in schools where these adjustments can be made, providing they are logistically possible and reasonable.
