Success Stories

English PGCE with QTS I wanted to train within the alliance because it seeemed a unique opportunity to complete my teacher training based in local schools that I would hope to apply to in the future. School Direct has benefitted my development as a teacher, as the opportunity to spend a large amount of my training within schools has greatly enhanced my ability to teach. Due to the length of the placements I haveb een able to fully understand the reality of teaching - and this course also enables you to develop positive realtionships with the students and have additional experiences such as attending parents evenings and completing data for your classes.

Connor Hall Art and Design PGCE with QTS WLTSA School Direct gave me the chance to get to grips with teaching as a career from day one of my training. I chose to go into teaching as I was completely inspired by my teachers as a student. School Direct helped me to fulfilling my career ambition, by supporting my training to the highest standard possible. With WLTSA School Direct I learnt on the job from the experts and received the best start to my teaching career.
