Partnership school information

Schools with allocated places for 2021-22

Lead Schools with an allocation of School Direct training places (salaried and/or unsalaried, tuition fee) will receive an invitation to attend our SD recruitment and selection training event on the 12 October 2021. At this time Lead Schools will receive their recruitment and selection pack to support the interview process.


Non-supported route

Independent schools and state schools which do not have an allocation of places from the Department of Education may offer School Direct places in 2021-22 through the 'non-supported' route (i.e. the route is not supported by funding from the DfE). This is sometimes referred to as a self-funded route. This route is only offered as a salaried route whereby the student-teacher is employed by the school. The school elects to fund the training and pays the student-teacher a salary as an unqualified teacher.
