There are two separate School Direct training options:

School Direct (tuition fee)

For high quality graduates, who want to be part of the school’s team from day one. This is similar to the PGCE route.  This programme is funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee, who may be eligible for a bursary.

School Direct Training Programme (salaried)

Is an employment-based route for high-quality experienced graduates with some work experience.  Trainees will be paid a salary on the unqualified teacher’s pay spine.
