School Direct is a school-led route offering you a way to qualify as a teacher (QTS) while based mainly in a school.
The School Direct Training programme is available to high-quality graduates and our partner schools offer places on both the tuition fee route and the salaried route. The salaried route means you will be able to earn a salary while you train, and aims to attract career changers and high quality candidates in hard to fill subjects.
At Middlesex, the School Direct programmes are closely aligned to the PGCE routes, meaning you will benefit from the provision of a range of high-quality central training, delivered by research-leaders and academics, who are widely published across disciplines such as multilingualism, diversity and childhood development.
All of our School Direct programmes provide the opportunity to gain a postgraduate qualification, which can be used towards a master's degree in the future. This will enable you to develop your skills for teaching and for understanding the interrelationship between learning and teaching, as you develop in to a critically reflective practitioner. The majority of our School Direct programmes (all primary routes, secondary salaried routes and some secondary subject areas on the Tuition Fee route) are aligned with the PGCert Teaching qualification. School Direct Tuition Fee programmes in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Drama / English, English, Geography, History, and Maths are aligned with the respective PGCE Secondary programmes.
Our extensive history of delivering leading education courses ensures that you will benefit from the guidance of expert tutors who bring a wealth of professional experience to their teaching.
Our degree is accredited by the Teaching Regulation Agency, Department for Education.
