The School Direct Training Programme is school-embedded initial teacher training (ITT) in primary and secondary schools across England. All of BGU’s School Direct places will lead to both a full PGCE award and Qualified Teacher Status.
There are two separate School Direct training options:
School Direct Training Programme (non-salaried):
You may be eligible for a bursary of up to £30,000 to support you while you train.
School Direct Training Programme (salaried):
An employment-based route available to high-quality graduates with at least three years’ work experience who will earn a salary whilst they train.
