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.

About the training provider

Thank you for your interest in the Willows School Direct partnership.

As a partnership we are committed to developing future teachers for the local area. Willows Primary School is an Outstanding primary school situated in Lichfield. Staff enjoy working here and children enjoy learning here. Our School Direct cluster is a group of supportive, like-minded, forward thinking primary schools passionate about delivering the highest standards for our pupils. This is at the heart of our School Direct partnership.

As a partnership, we always put our pupils first. In order to give our pupils the best, we ensure that our initial teacher training is the best. Associate teachers (School Direct students) receive the highest quality in both training and school experience. Our School based University Tutor ensures that the communication between university, placement schools and candidates is as smooth and effective as possible. There is always someone available to listen, liaise and support.
