School Direct

School Direct

Applications are now open for Teacher Training in 2019-20

For more information on our School Direct programme and How to Apply please visit our new website:


The School Direct course is a full-time, one year course leading to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and, as with the SCITT programme, it also offers the opportunity to study for a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with the University of Hull.

*Please note, the expectation of employment with School Direct places is not a guarantee of employment

The main difference between SCITT and School Direct is how the places are allocated- School direct places are allocated directly to the school whereas SCITT places are allocated directly to accredited training providers (e.g. Redcar and Cleveland Teacher Training Partnership). School Direct schools can then choose to handle all of their own recruitment and training or they can work with a training provider to manage this.

In our case RCTTP works very closely with our School Direct partner schools throughout recruitment and School Direct trainees are trained alongside those on the SCITT programme, there is no difference between the training and qualifications received on  either programme.
