What is School Direct?
• School Direct is an opportunity for schools to influence the way in
which initial teacher training (ITT) is delivered by creating more
school-led training programmes that better meet the needs of
schools and trainees.
• Schools will be able to recruit and select the trainees that best meet
their and their partnership needs, with the expectation that those
teachers will go on to work in the group of schools where they
trained.
• The aim is to introduce choice into the ITT system by enabling
schools to negotiate with their chosen ITT provider how they wish to
use their School Direct place(s); the training programme which will
be delivered and the funding they receive from the provider.
School Direct Programmes
• The School Direct Training Programme
• Open to all graduates
• Funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee
• Trainees with a 2:2 or above are entitled to a bursary
• The School Direct Training Programme (salaried)
• Employment-based route into teaching
• For high quality graduates with 3 or more years’ career
experience
• Trainee employed as an unqualified teacher by a school
• Teaching Agency provides funding which the school can use to
subsidise the trainee’s salary and/or training.
• Replaces the GTP from 2013-14.
Requesting places
• Expressions of interest – until 7th September 2012
• Complete the online registration form which can be found here:
http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/careers/traininganddevelo
pment/initial/b00205704/school-direct/register-interest.
• Information needed:
• School contact, school name and URN, number of schools in
consortium, School Direct salaries and/or non salaried route, phase
of places to be requested.
• Places by phase and subject – 7th Sept to 28th Sept 2012
• Schools can request places in specific phases and subjects through a lead
school from 7 September 2012 until 28 September 2012 inclusive. Places
will be allocated and the TA will correspond with the group of schools
through the lead school.
Requesting and receiving places
• School Direct is demand-led and schools should request
subjects and phases where employment need is greatest.
The TA will prioritise requests according to subject and phase
to reflect national priorities and will need to work within the
total number of places. The TA will also apply a number of
criteria when considering requests for places. The main
criteria will be: school quality, trainee quality, national priority
subjects, cohort size and recruitment record. Further details
can be found in section 1 of the guide to School Direct.
Training
• Schools choose which accredited ITT provider to work with –
can be a HEI-led (university) or school-led (SCITT).
• School and ITT provide negotiate how the training is
structured and agree who will do what and how the funding
will be divided to reflect this.
• The respective roles and responsibilities should be set out in a
partnership agreement between schools and the ITT provider.
• Provider is accountable and responsible for the
recommendation of the award of qualified teacher status
(QTS) – important as the school direct trainees will be
included in any provider Ofsted inspection and monitoring.
Funding, fees and bursaries
• The School Direct Training Programme

Recruitment of trainees
• Schools can recruit locally through their own recruitment processes,
work with their ITT provider to use its marketing and recruitment
processes, or use a combination of the two.
• Recruitment processes should be high quality, open and transparent
and will be subject to inspection by Ofsted.
• Schools should take the lead in interviewing and selecting
candidates, but all School Direct candidates must meet the standard
entry requirements of the school’s chosen provider, and be
approved by the provider.
• Schools should ensure candidates for the School Direct Training
Programme are fully aware of the fees they are likely to be charged.

Employment after training
• Prior to requesting places, schools are expected to:
• Review their previous employment patterns and use any current
knowledge on staffing/budgetary issues to make an assessment
of future need.
• This assessment should enable schools to request a number of
places which broadly matches the future employment
requirements within the school/partnership of schools.
• The schools(s) is expected to have a clear capacity to employ the
trainees when they successfully complete their training
programme.
• Throughout the process, schools should be aiming to employ
trainees at the end of their training, barring any circumstances
which prevent this e.g. changes to school structure.
