This route is available for both primary and secondary teaching, and is run by individual schools or a group of schools.
- Schools that opt for a School Direct (salaried) training programme to train a graduate employ unqualified teachers while they learn on the job. In many cases, this will be a trainee already working in your school, or someone that has an existing relationship with the school.
- We gain a reference from a previous employer before the trainee starts their (salaried) training programme. If they are self-employed and unable to provide a reference from a former employer, their referee would be someone who knows you from work, who can comment on their work and suitability for teaching.
- Schools can employ trainees who want a part-time placement. Through the School Direct (salaried) route, some schools are offering part-time or abridged programmes.We can discuss these flexible options with you.
- Graduates may still be able to apply for a School Direct (salaried) programme by undertaking a subject knowledge enhancement course, if their undergraduate degree is not aligned to what they would like to train to teach. e-Qualitas offer short SKE courses. Click here for more information.
- e-Qualitas also offer an optional integrated PGCE qualification as part of this teacher training route.
