Schools Direct



School Direct is the new way of training teachers. You’ll be in safe hands with Leeds Trinity University and The Holy Family Catholic School, the premier providers of teacher training in the Yorkshire and Humber region, giving you quality assurance with partnering schools.


Graduates interested in becoming a teacher may prefer to complete initial-teacher training with a particular partnership of schools under the School Direct PGCE programme for primary and secondary. School Direct partnerships provide opportunities for trainees to work in a school environment for most of their training.
There are two routes of School Direct:


Non-salaried: Open to all graduates, financial support is available throughout your training, with opportunities to receive a tax-free bursary of up to £20,000 from the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL). The tuition fee is £9,000 a year for postgraduate study with Leeds Trinity.


Salaried: Aimed at graduates who have three or more years’ work experience, trainees will have their salary and training costs subsidised by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL).
