Our former School Direct Trainees give you an insight into their Teacher Training experiences with Hatton Teaching School Alliance.

The school direct training programme is an intensive one year course leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Post Graduate certificate in Education (PGCE). Trainees have a school-based mentor who will provide support and guidance during their training year.

The programme combines University based learning with true school-based experience. You will gradually increase the level of teaching, learning how to successfully deliver lessons whilst gaining behaviour management, planning and assessment skills.
