School Direct - Train to Teach 

Weatherhead Teaching School Alliance, in partnership with:

   

Thinking of a career in teaching? School Direct is an exciting new training route for top graduates interested in teaching at primary, secondary or early years level.

Working in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, this Wirral-based Initial Teacher Training (ITT) is delivered in schools, by schools and with the aim that you will go on to work as a qualified teacher within our alliance.

We are an alliance of early years, primary, secondary and special schools in the Wirral area who have an excellent reputation for working collaboratively to deliver high quality School Direct training. The group of schools involved is diverse, and led by Weatherhead High School, an Ofsted outstanding school and National Teaching School. Our strategic partner, St George’s Primary School, lead on the Early Years and Primary aspects of our Alliance’s programme.

What better way to train to teach than to learn from outstanding teachers, in great schools! 

School Direct allows you to do just that because School Direct trainees spend more time in schools learning to become outstanding teachers from outstanding teachers and school leaders.

Our practical programme is balanced with theoretical education input, with graduates not only gaining QTS but also a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) through our partnership with Liverpool John Moores University. 

School Direct also attracts bursary funding of up to £30,000.
