About the course
Our course enables participants to develop their understanding and experience of teaching through a combination of classroom practice and research.
Participants are based in a local partner school from day one of the school year, spending approximately 4 days a week actively developing their skills in school. Taught sessions are timetabled to compliment work in school and are supported by experienced colleagues. There are opportunities to work alongside a range of our partner schools. Our sessions are held at a variety of locations which provide opportunities for study as a well as hands-on experience in schools.
Participants are assessed through a combination of evidence gathering and assignments which provide opportunities to combine research, reflection, practice and planning for implementation.
For our interview process we work hand-in-hand with the Head Teachers from our partner schools.
The process will involve a combination of key elements such as:
Interview, teaching episode.
How school placements work
Our school placements begin from day 1 of the Autumn Term when participants will join their base placement school.
During the Spring Term, participants have the opportunity to learn alongside colleagues in their second school placement, which will focus on gaining understanding of their alternative Key Stage.
In the Summer Term, participants will return to their base placement school to complete their final classroom experience.
Throughout the year, participants will be required to complete a selection of short, alternative school placements which will provide opportunities to develop understanding of different age ranges and settings.

Degree at 2:2 or above

About the training provider
Poole TSA are passionate about engaging high quality, enthusiastic, motivated people in the teaching profession. We have teamed up with The Learning Institute to offer our hugely successful teacher training programme for Primary Teachers. The School Direct route into teaching successfully engages theory with practice throughout the training year. Our trainees are welcomed into a local school as part of the teaching team from the very beginning of the year.
The School Direct programme enables theory of teaching and learning to be very quickly put into practice. Trainees spend approximately four days a week in their placement school and one day training in local schools with excellent current practitioners.
This programme is awarded a PGCE, with QTS. Trainees graduate as a Primary teacher, qualified to teach ages 3-11. Poole TSA passionately believe in securing the principles of Early Years Education to provide for steady foundations into the Primary Phase and this is integrated across our training.
Poole TSA pride ourselves in supporting our trainees to be resilient and well prepared for the career ahead of them.
The Poole TSA School Direct programme is about success. We work closely with our trainees to enable them to get the very best from the programme and prepare them to provide the most excellent learning experiences for the children they work with.
