School Direct

Barton Hill Academy is in partnership with Exeter University and are offering School Direct placements. We are calling for applications from the most able graduates in the region.

This new path into teaching is a great new way to gain the qualifications and practical skills you need to become a teacher. It allows those who have just finished a degree, or have been working in a career for many years to combine teacher training with actually doing and learning on the job.

The resulting qualification is accredited as a PGCE with QTS.

Applications for the school direct programme for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, starting in September 2017, need to be made via the following link:

In order to submit your application, you will be required to confirm that you meet the eligibility requirements for School Direct.

All applicants will be asked for details of:

·         contact information

·         qualifications and educational history, including details of the institutions at which qualifications were gained

·         referees, including contact information

·         Candidates are advised to have this information to hand before completing their application.

You will also be required to submit a personal statement. This is your opportunity to explain why the school should offer you a place on the programme. As there is considerable competition for places, we recommend that you spend some time writing, drafting and checking this before submitting your application. Our application tips page gives guidance on the type of information you should include in your personal statement.

Registration and applications are completely free. In addition, the system allows you to save and manage your draft applications, and stores copies of your submitted applications for your reference. You can apply for School Direct places at up to three schools initially. You will be able to apply to further schools if any of your initial applications are unsuccessful and you have not accepted a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) place through the Graduate Teacher Training Registry (GTTR) or Teach First.

Please note that whilst applications for School Direct will not be accepted via the GTTR, you will be asked to note on your School Direct application form whether you have made an application to the GTTR for a place, and if so, which teacher training provider you have applied to and your chosen subject.

You will also be required to take the numeracy and literacy professional skills tests as part of the application process, and ensure you have passed them both before the start of the course.
