School Direct


“From the interview process to completing my first placement at St Swithun Wells, the support, guidance and advice I have received will set the foundations for my teaching career.” 
School Direct trainee

Our Alliance schools offer trainees a supportive environment that is backed up with a range of training opportunities and support mechanisms.

There are two routes for School Direct:

  • School Direct (tuition fee) – trainees may be eligible for a bursary up to £20,000
  • School Direct (salaried) – this is an employment-based route where trainees are employed as unqualified teachers.

Further information about places available in 2016/17 will be published here shortly.
