School Direct 

Train to become a teacher with the Greenwood Academies Trust and benefit from a tailored package of support and development from outstanding, experienced teachers and tutors.

In conjunction with our accredited providers, The Cambridge Partnership, Bishop Grosseteste University, Nottingham Trent University, and the University of Nottingham, the Trust is offering School Direct training places to start in September 2019. Based in one of our academies, trainees will study for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Masters credits, and a QTS award.

Since 2013 we have successfully trained more than 100 teachers through School Direct, with an impressive 100% employment rate upon completion of the course. 

Get all the information you need about a career in teaching and how to get there by visiting the
Get Into Teaching website.

Do you want to teach a subject that isn’t directly related to your Degree?

Don’t worry! If you want to train to teach Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Computing, Design Technology, English, Geography, Languages or Religious Education, Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses are available. These are fully funded and also come with a bursary. You need to apply for and be offered a School Direct place before starting a SKE course, so please keep this timeframe in mind.  

Our School Direct places for September 2019 have now closed.  Applications for September 2020 will open soon - contact theresa.ford@greenwoodacademies.org for more details.

In order to apply you must have: 

  • An understanding of teaching in a UK mainstream classroom  
  • GCSE grade C/4 or above in English and maths (and science for Primary trainees)
  • Degree at 2:2 or above
  • NARIC certification for overseas Degree/GCSE equivalence
