PTSA School Direct is the entry point to Plymouth Primary and Secondary Schools, offering a one year school-based programme where trainees are part of a school team from day one. School Direct trainees benefit from a full 40-week schedule. Complementing their time learning the job in school trainees receive HEI lecturers, and a contrasting second school Key Stage experience. SLE Learning Hubs have been developed across the city schools to support subject and pedagogy specialisms.
Shared training across the Alliance gives complete and contrasting experiences. Trainee teachers who successfully complete all modules are awarded a P.G.C.E. Post Graduate Certificate of Education (including up to 60 Masters credits) with Qualified Teacher Status.
