School Direct

The Canterbury Teaching Alliance is working alongside Christchurch University to offer teacher training through the ‘School Direct’ scheme. We are offering salaried and unsalaried positions into teaching via the School Direct route.

School Direct will gain you QTS status only but you are able to do a PGCE Top Up qualification during the year with us.

The schools in the alliance who are currently offering School Direct primary qualifications (2017-2018) are Barham, Bridge & Patrixbourne and Wickhambreaux Primary. Secondary places are offered by Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar, Spires Academy,  Sir Roger Manwood’s and Dover Christ Church Academy across a number of different subject areas.

At Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar we have had 100% success rate with our School Direct trainees with all securing teaching jobs in Kent and beyond at the end of their training year.  Such is the success of the School Direct training scheme that the number of applications received continues to grow year on year.

Please see the tables below for vacancies for 2017-2018.  Applications can be made once UCAS goes live on 18th October 2016.
