The School Direct Programme

The School Direct route into teaching is pre-dominantly school-based but maintains links with an accrediting university who provide academic input for the PGCE qualification and subject training. With School Direct the White Rose Alliance work in conjunction with Leeds Trinity University, Sheffield Hallam University & York St John University awarding a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and 60 Masters level credits.

The lead school for the White Rose Alliance is King James´s School in Knaresborough.

Trainees are primarily school based but will be required to attend their course university regularly & King James´s School (generally) every Wednesday morning until March. Requirements for university attendance differ for each university but more detail is shown on our course overview.
