- School Direct programmes are popular with students who are hoping to gain a position in their placement school following their training.
- Although your training is based in a school, they’re not your employers, and in many ways, your training will be similar to training programmes in universities and colleges.
- Unlike School Direct (salaried) programmes, you’ll pay fees but you might be eligible for funding through student loans, bursaries, or scholarships. Find out more.
- If your degree subject doesn’t link closely to your chosen teaching subject, you may still be able to apply for a School Direct (salaried) programme by undertaking a subject knowledge enhancement course. You may be asked to take an SKE course as a condition of your offer before you start your initial teacher training programme.
