At the Endeavour teaching school we currently offer the salaried school direct route into teaching.
The salaried school direct program replaces the old graduate teacher program (gttr).
School Direct is an employment-based teacher training route which gives schools more control over what training is provided and how it is delivered. Schools recruit the trainees they want and the expectation is that the trainees will go on to teach in their school, or another school in their partnership, once qualified.
This year the Endeavour teaching school are offering primary salaried School Direct programme, aimed at graduates with three or more years’ career experience. We are leading a cluster of 6 primary schools, spread across London, Essex and Croydon. Each trainee on the programme will be employed as an unqualified teacher in one of the schools in the cluster.
The Salaried School direct program gives student more time ‘on the job’ than other routes into teaching. However, students will still receive high quality training from ourselves and our higher educational provider the Institute of Education. Successful completion of this programme leads to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
