Teacher Training

We offer the School Direct teacher training programme, both salaried and tuition fee, in partnership with the Alban Federation, (rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2012). 

Do you qualify?

We are keen to engage with candidates who have a passion for their subject and the learning process, whilst wanting to inspire young people to fulfil their potential. If this describes you, get in touch and let us tell you how you can fulfil yours.

Applicants are now encouraged to register their interest in teacher training via www.UCAS.com. Applications will be accepted from October 2018 when the national window next opens.

Applicants must submit an application form via UCAS but should be aware of some other requirements.

A reminder that we require you to have obtained GCSE Maths and English at grade C or above (or be registered for the appropriate equivalency test) at the time of application. Primary applicants will also require GCSE Science.

You must also register and sit the Professional Skills Tests for entrants to the profession as part of the application process. We recommend doing this as soon as possible once you have registered with UCAS.

All applicants who sat examinations overseas must have applied to NARIC for an equivalency check before applying for Federation training.

On successful completion of the training Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) will be awarded.


There are two School Direct routes as outlined below…

School Direct salaried

This route is only available for the subjects that the government designate as high or other priority.

To apply for this route you must meet the statutory requirements for initial teacher training (see eligibility requirements), your degree should ideally be a 2:i or First (although applicants with other degrees will be considered) and you must have three years career experience in a professional field.

For those who went straight into higher education from school, regardless of whether there was a gap year or not, this should be since completing your degree.

An acceptable alternative to this is if your degree was gained later in life after a minimum of 3 years career experience. Your degree should be at least 50% in the subject you wish to teach although we will consider in some cases degrees that are closely linked e.g. an engineering degree for a science training place.

Trainees on the School Direct Salaried route are employed at their training school and paid on the UQT1 pay scale. The government have removed the requirement for School Direct Salaried trainees to be supernumerary which allows those who have been working as unqualified teachers in schools to continue to teach a 90% timetable while training. The majority of trainees, however, who do not have teaching experience, will begin with a very light timetable that will increase over the year.

School Direct tuition fee

This route is generally available for all subjects.

To apply for this route you must meet the statutory requirements for initial teacher training (see eligibility requirements). Your degree should be at least 50% in the subject you wish to teach although we will consider in some cases degrees that are closely linked e.g. an engineering degree for a science training place.

As the name implies this is a tuition fee funded route. For September 2018 the tuition fees that Alban Federation will charge are £7,500. Bursaries are available in some subjects while student loans can be accessed in support of paying fees. Some applicants are also eligible for maintenance support through training.

Once trainees have accepted places on this training programme they can then make applications for tuition fee loans through Student Finance England (Student Loans Company), to cover the cost of their training. Trainees in priority subjects may be entitled to a bursary which is determined by the subject and degree class.

Trainees on the School Direct Tuition Fee programme are not employed by their training school and do not receive a salary. They are supernumerary which means all of the classes they will teach are ’borrowed’ from a teacher employed by the school. Consequently there is flexibility in the training to allow the teaching timetable to grow at a rate that suits the trainee within the constraints of the training year. It also means there is scope for guided teaching and team teaching at the start of the training.
