Train to be a Primary School Teacher with Wednesbury Teaching School Alliance

Train to be a primary school teacher with Wednesbury Teaching School Alliance
  
Our alliance of schools are part of a growing number of schools that are leading the way for more school-led training. This is really important because it means we can choose the very best talent and develop them into teachers for our children. We are working alongside the University of Wolverhampton to offer a one year PGCE course with qualified teacher status (QTS). We are looking for people who have a degree, a passion for teaching and who want to inspire children to fulfil their potential.

Due to the success of our initial recruitment process we are now able to offer further places for the PGCE programme to start in September 2015.
  
If you want to find out more about the benefits of training through School Direct (Tuition) please contact either Joanne Sheen, Jennie Hodgetts or Wendy McNeil at:   teaching.school@harvillshawthorn.sandwell.sch.uk or  Telephone 0121-557-1034

School Direct 

School Direct is a programme that was initially proposed in the 2011 Department for Education (DfE) ITT Strategy paper ‘Training Our Next Generation of Outstanding Teachers’. It allows schools to take a leading role in ITT (Initial teacher Training) whilst working in partnership with an accredited ITT provider to help deliver this.
