Schools Direct Programme 2012
Harris Federation recruits candidates wishing to achieve QTS via the Schools Direct Route. This is a school-based programme of teacher training which is offered in collaboration with Canterbury Christ Church University.
Secondary places are usually available in the following subjects:
- Modern Foreign Languages
Primary places may also be available.
In order to apply for the course you must have a relevant degree, with a classification of 2.2 or above, along with Maths and English GCSEs (or equivalent) at C+. Candidates must demonstrate a passion for teaching and will also need some relevant school based experience at the time of application. A fee will be charged for the course and candidates will be eligible for the same financial support and bursary as other postgraduate teacher training routes.
Candidates training on this route will have a structured programme of support and training to help them reach their potential as teachers. All candidates will also be encouraged to undertake a school action research project which gives the opportunity to earn Masters Level credits.
This is an exciting route into teaching and further information will be available in October/November 2012.
Please speak to Ms Jenny Abel at Harris City Academy Crystal Palace if you have any specific questions about the application process.
