School Direct Overview

School Direct puts schools at the heart of the process. With School Direct, schools can request training places directly, select the accredited provider with whom they want to work and agree the content and focus of the training programme. Trainees are placed in a base training school for the majority of the training year and also carry out a short second school placement.


The School Direct Training programme is available to all graduates and offers tax-free bursaries of up to £26,000 for candidates with applying for priority subjects. Candidates pay a tuition fee of £9000 which can be taken out as a Student Loan.
