About the course

Our trainees will have two placement schools – a ‘home’ school and an ‘away’ school. You will spend the majority of the year working in your ‘home’ school and then approximately six weeks in your ‘away’ school. This gives you the chance to form strong links with both staff and pupils in your ‘home’ placement, so that you are genuinely part of the school community. The ‘away’ school forms a contrast, giving you wider experience.

Interview process

Liverpool College is the lead school in the alliance and will take the lead on the recruitment process. Trainees will be invited to interview at Liverpool College where you will undertake a 20 minute observation, an interview with subject specialists, a tour of the school and an opportunity to speak to current trainees and mentors and finally a numeracy and literacy assessment. If the placement will be mainly in another of the partnership schools they will take the lead on the interview process.

For more information, please contact Mrs S Lines (Assistant Principal):slines@liverpoolcollege.org.uk

How school placements work

There are several schools within the alliance from around Liverpool. Trainee's will experience two contrasting schools such as a mixed school and a all boys or girls school. Trainee's spend two terms in their home school and one term in their away school.

About the training provider

The School Direct teacher training programme allows postgraduate trainees to work closely with a school to gain a teaching qualification, while still having the benefits of university support and study. If you choose to train with Liverpool College School Direct Alliance, you will participate in the PGCE programme offered by Liverpool Hope University, having your subject training delivered by Liverpool Hope tutors, whilst your professional development will be provided in school by experienced teachers from across the alliance. You will also have the opportunity to take part in PGCE conferences and other events organised by Liverpool Hope University. We feel that this mixture gives our trainees the best of both worlds – practical training led by professionals who really know the challenges of school life married with high quality academic input and the opportunity to mix with trainees from across the city region at Liverpool Hope University.
