About the accredited body

In addition to the well-established and highly regarded PGCE, Goldsmiths is delighted to be working in partnership with us to offer School Direct, a school-led route into teaching.

Courses last for one full academic year (September - July) and involve two placements. Although you will not be able to choose where your placements will be, the lead school will do their best to place you near your home.
