School Direct

WTSA University of Wolverhampton

What is School Direct?

School Direct is an exciting, school based programme of initial teacher training. Working with our partner, the University of Wolverhampton, we aim to recruit the very best trainees for our schools.

For you, this means that your course is based in schools for the majority of the time, training in an environment that has an established reputation for excellence in teaching and teacher training.

"The best people to teach teachers are teachers. School-led systems put schools, school leaders and teachers firmly in the driving seat"


Our School Direct Partners

"Inspiring the next generation of children and helping them to realise their potential"

Our School Direct family of schools are based in and around Sandwell in the West Midlands. All of our schools are either good or outstanding and work together to provide a consistent, progressive, needs- led programme for our trainees. We want to train, develop and nurture outstanding teachers for the children in our schools.

"Working within the family of WTSA schools means that we have a network of support and can draw on the expertise of subject specialists. The relationships between the schools are exceptional, which means key developments and ideas are shared"
