Oxford Brookes University works with schools
in England to offer graduate pathways into teaching through the School Direct
programme. Training programmes are run by partnerships of schools where
trainees are placed. Trainees learn how to be teachers on-the-job and are
recommended for the professional award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). As
well as the professional award, the majority of trainees also take part in
academic training to gain a masters level Post Graduate Certificate in
Education (PGCE) through the university. Trainees receive support from experienced
university and school-based professionals and are allowed to take on whole
class teaching once ready.
are two routes: tuition fee and salaried placements.
Trainees on the School Direct tuition fee programme
will train to become teachers while they work at a school
but are paid. Instead they may be eligible for the government funding.
graduates with around three years of work experience can apply for School Direct salaried programmes. These trainees are employed as unqualified teachers while they learn
on-the-job, and therefore receive a salary.
Direct trainees gain employment within the network of schools where they have trained,
although this is not guaranteed.
those who currently hold QTS only, to enhance your career development we offer
the master’s level three module PGCE without QTS. Credits from this course be put towards an MA Education.
If you are a graduate and want to complete your training in a school environment, you may want to consider School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITTS).
