School Direct is a popular choice for those wanting to train to be a teacher on the job, have an immersive, practical experience and who hope to secure a role in the network of schools where they train. School Direct programmes are designed and delivered by schools in partnership with a university provider. The placement schools recruit you as a trainee with a job in mind just for you.
At the heart of our School Direct teacher training programme are two ‘Outstanding’ York schools – Manor CE Secondary Academy (Hope Learning Trust) and Robert Wilkinson Primary Academy (Ebor Academy Trust). These are our ‘Lead Schools’ who work in partnership with York St John University to deliver a truly school-centred programme.
Together we award a PGCE with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and 60 Masters level credits of professional development modules.
