The intention of School Direct is for schools to recruit and educate candidates in subject and age phases most in need of employment and choose how the Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programme should be delivered in partnership with the University.

School Direct is open to all graduates and funded by tuition fees paid by the candidate. All School Direct places will lead to qualified teacher status (QTS) and subject to negotiation with partnership schools, will also lead to a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) validated by the University.
