Our School Direct Partners present unique opportunities

The Programme is focused on presenting employment-based teaching skills.

The School Direct Programme is an employment-based model of teacher education. School Direct placements for primary and early years trainees have replaced the GTP primary course at LSBU. During our most recent Ofsted inspection, the employment-based route was given a rating of 'good' and our graduates boast a post-course employment rate which is well above the sector average.

Trainees typically show secure subject knowledge in teaching English and Maths. They use this to plan and structure lessons well, taking account of pupils' varying starting points.
