About the training provider
If you're looking for school-led training, School Direct is the option for you. You're not thrown in at the deep end, and you'll be part of a team from day one. Your school will provide you with a fully qualified mentor and CPD in school which will complement the training received at Wolverhampton University
Spring Vale Alliance offers trainee teachers the unique opportunity to work and learn at exciting and innovative primary schools. All our schools share a common ethos and approach to pedagogy, ensuring that pupils become confident lead learners, achieving the highest standards possible.
Our schools have a proven track record of working in partnership with local universities and other outside agencies. We are passionate about growing future leaders and believe that School Direct offers an unrivalled opportunity for trainees to learn and develop in our vibrant schools.
By working within our teaching alliance, trainees will experience a range of contrasting challenges that will make them highly marketable in the current job market. Since 2016, our schools have trained 14 students to at least a good standard and all of these students have gained employment within the Alliance as Newly Qualified Teachers.
The Partnership will:
- provide an outstanding academic (The University of Wolverhampton) and 'hands-on' school-based experience in a variety of educational settings
- offer a bespoke training package for each trainee
- include trainee teachers in all aspects of the life of the school
- assist with employment after training
About the accredited body
Our excellent partnership with the University of Wolverhampton means that students will receive high-quality hands-on support from day one. This will continue as you take up your first appointment as a newly qualified teacher and throughout your career. As expected in high-performing schools, our staff are expert at meeting your needs and will ensure you receive outstanding continued professional development.
Training with disabilities and other needs
Teachers with disabilities, make an important contribution to schools both in the classroom and in shaping the wider culture and ethos of the schools they work in. Schools value diversity and the unique contribution that all their staff and trainees bring. If you have a disability, you shouldn’t be dissuaded from applying.
It’s a personal choice if you want to inform your school and/or university of your disability. The advantage of disclosure is that it enables support and reasonable adjustments to be put in place. In addition, specialist equipment, extra funding and support, can help you achieve your ambition of becoming a teacher.
