Places on WRA School Direct courses are limited and recruitment takes place on a rolling basis. Once the number of candidate offers accepted reaches the course limit, courses will be closed. Prospective applicants are therefore recommended to apply as soon as possible to avoid missing out on the course of their choice. We also strongly recommend that prospective applicants obtain their references as soon as possible to prevent any delay in submitting their application.
Fees & funding (bursaries)
The tuition fee for the WRA School Direct course is £9000 but participants will be able to access student loans, and depending on subject and grade of degree, may be eligible for a bursary. For details of funding available visit the DfE Get into Teaching website.
During the course trainees will have to undertake placements in two of our partner schools. Please note that whilst we are unable to guarantee exactly which schools in our partnership trainees will be allocated for their placements, consideration will be given to individual trainee circumstances/locations wherever operationally possible. Trainees will also be required to travel to the partner university for their respective course on a regular basis. Requirements for this vary between universities.
Please see the other pages in this section for details of the qualities the WRA look for in applicants, how to apply for a School Direct place and details of further information.
