School Direct Teacher Training at Knole Academy

What is School Direct?

As part of School Direct you will be employed here or in one of our partnership schools as an unqualified teacher.  You will undertake entirely ‘on the job’ training, allowing you to gain the qualifications and practical skills required to become a teacher.  We offer both salaried and un-salaried training.  Bursaries are available through DFE.

As a School Direct trainee training with Knole Academy and our ITT provider, LDBS SCITT, you will learn alongside inspiring, passionate teachers with outstanding pedagogical skills.  We will train you to become a successful confident, effective teacher, well equipped to teach in a dynamic and vibrant school.

Teacher Training Open Events at Knole Academy – 16 Oct and 6 Nov 2018

Thinking of getting into teaching?  With the School Direct Teacher Training programme you can train to become either a primary or secondary school teacher through our part or full time training programme.  Trainees also have the opportunity to undertake a salaried route and get paid from the start of your training programme.

Why not attend one of our Information Events at Knole Academy for your chance to sit in on an hour-long secondary school lesson in a subject of your choice and attend a School Direct programme presentation session?  The session will cover your training options, how to apply, your fees and funding options along with a Q & A session.
