Many SCITTs and schools also run School Direct courses. This is a popular choice for those who hope to secure a teaching post in the network of schools where they are training.
If you’re successful in your training, there is a government expectation that you will get a job offer in one of the schools when you qualify. We are delighted to report that at AMP SCITT 80% of the 2016 cohort who have secured teaching posts are within our partnership of schools.
Just like SCITT courses, with School Direct you get practical, hands-on training and education based in good schools across the country. School Direct courses are designed by groups of schools – with a university or a SCITT – based on the skills they are looking for in a newly qualified teacher. The schools recruit you as a trainee onto their School Direct course with a job in mind just for you.
We provide practical, hands-on teacher training delivered by experienced, practising teachers, based in schools in our partnership. Our School Direct course is a year long from September to July and results in QTS.
All of our trainees will also be awarded PGCE from Liverpool Hope University. (60 Masters credits).
Our course code for secondary school direct is 1CD with Deyes High as the lead school.
Our course code for primary school direct is 2F5 with Hudson Primary School as the lead school and 2F6 with Green Park Primary School.
The Associated Merseyside Partnership SCITT is the accredited provider for all the above courses.
