School Direct

The School Direct course is a full-time, one year course leading to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and, as with the SCITT programme, it also offers the opportunity to study for a   postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) with the University of Hull.

The main difference between SCITT and School Direct is how the places are allocated- School direct places are allocated directly to the school whereas SCITT places are allocated directly to accredited training providers (e.g. Redcar and Cleveland Teacher Training Partnership). School Direct schools can then choose to handle all of their own recruitment and training or they can work with a training provider to manage this.

Sacred Heart Secondary is the Lead School for a consortium of primary and secondary schools in     Redcar and Cleveland working in partnership with Redcar and Cleveland Teacher Training Partnership to provide teacher training places through School Direct.

*Successful applicants could be placed in Sacred Heart or one of the other schools in the partnership

Sacred Heart and RCTTP work very closely throughout recruitment and School Direct trainees are trained alongside those on the SCITT programme, there is no difference between the training and qualifications received on either programme.

For 2019/20 we are accepting applications for the following:

Primary (Key stage 1 and 2)

Secondary (Key Stage 3 and 4) following subjects only:

  • Maths
  • English
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Biology
  • Geography
  • History

What people say

Headteachers speak extremely highly of the quality that new teachers from the partnership provide and see them as competent and confident professionals who are ready for employment.

Ofsted Report 2016

I was asked during my interview why I chose this training programme instead of any other. I thought it would give me the best training of any that I’d found and I stand by that even more now. The support and guidance I got was exemplary.

Trainee

This course really is fantastic. I feel personally that I could not have been given a better start to my teaching career.

Trainee

Trainees have stated to me that all sessions without exception have been valuable to them mainly because they felt the nature and the content of the sessions had been well thought out and prepared in detail making them highly relevant to their classroom experiences

Partnership Tutor

The quality of training at Redcar and Cleveland Teacher Training Partnership is outstanding, and, as a result, trainees achieve high outcomes.

Ofsted Report 2016

One of the many strengths the RCTTP course offers is the high standard of support to trainees and I am especially thankful for that and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this course
