Who can apply?

Anyone with a degree can apply to train on a School Direct programme. UCAS require applicants to hold the minimum of GCSE (or equivalent) in Maths and English to a grade C. Also required is a minimum of 15 days experience in a school setting. Before starting training, all candidates must also pass the QTS Skills test in Maths and English (in addition to GCSEs) and hold a current DBS certificate.

Many School Direct applicants come straight from University, others make the choice to come to teaching after successful careers in other professions. We will consider every application on its individual merits.
