School Direct is a Government initiative, providing school-led teacher training.
Our School Direct – Initial Teacher Training programme is devised and run by the Forest Way Teaching School Alliance, (FWTSA) and 3 local Universities. It places trainee teachers in the classroom from day 1 working alongside experienced teachers to learn the skills of teaching “on the job”. This real teaching experience is supported by training held at both the University and the Teaching School Alliance. FWTSA works in collaboration with the University of Derby, the University of Leicester and Loughborough University.
The FWTSA programme has been running successfully for 3 years and has seen fantastic results along the way with all of it's trainees securing teaching jobs after completion of their PGCE training year.
The FWTSA Secondary programme combines the wealth of experience and skills from it's six local secondary schools, the majority of which have achieved Outstanding and Good Ofsted rating, to bring you a programme which incorporates hands on work at schools, regular time at university and practical locally based training by skilled and experienced practitioners.
