We’ve had real classroom experience which means that I feel well-equipped and eager to start my career as a teacher – DTA trainee

School Direct

  • This non-salaried route is run by a school, or group of schools, that work closely with a university that certifies successful trainees.  You will be based in a school, but will also be taught by the university, that the school partners with. 
  • The DTA School Direct programme leads to a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) Qualification with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status). 
  • If your degree subject does not link closely to your chosen teaching subject you many still be offered a place on condition you complete a Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) Course in your subjectThis must be successfully completed prior to starting your Initial Teacher Training programme.
