Train to Teach

Are you interested in a career in teaching?

We offer the School Direct route into teaching and work in partnership with Maiden Erlegh Institute and the University of Reading to deliver training.

With School Direct, applicants can choose their main placement school and spend the majority of their training in school alongside qualified teachers. This route is open to high quality graduates and is popular with those looking to secure a role within their main placement school.  

The programme lasts one year and leads to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), qualifying you to teach children aged 5 to 11.  You will be taught by university tutors and experienced mentors at your placement school.
