School Direct

School Direct

At Whitefield School we offer Initial Teacher Education programmes for graduates interested in joining the teaching profession through our year-long School Direct (salaried and non-salaried) and PGCE teacher training courses.

As a trainee teacher you will have access to invaluable school and classroom practice that will equip you with the knowledge, skills and experience you will need to become an excellent classroom teacher.

During your time with us you will be supported by a group of subject mentors and tutors to explore a range of approaches to teaching and learning. We aim to ensure that you feel confident, well-informed and supported in your teaching practice.

When you graduate from the School Direct programme, you will be awarded Qualified Teaching Status, a PGCE and 60 M Level credits. Upon qualifying, you will be in the best possible place to start your career as a teacher with us.
