School Direct - Salaried Route

If you are a graduate and have been working for around three years, Teach Northants provides School Direct salaried courses. Teach Northants will recruit you as a trainee onto our School Direct salaried course with a school in mind just for you and you will earn a salary while you train. On successful completion of the course you will be awarded Qualified Teacher Status. Your salary will be a minimum of £16,461. Your tuition fees will be paid for by your placement school.

This is the ideal route if you want to stay in the world of work, as you will be employed as an unqualified teacher during your training while you learn ‘on the job’, receiving support from experienced teachers and mentors.

The School Direct salaried course lasts a year, and you will train in at least two schools across at least two consecutive age ranges. In some cases, applications from high quality candidates with fewer that three years’ work experience may be considered. This does not have to be from a career in education, but generally applies to the years following graduation. Dedicated support through the programme includes:- 

  • Dedicated mentor within your placement school. 
  • Extensive support from knowledgeable and experienced programme managers.
  • Centre based training sessions delivered by a range of specialists. These include core training days and weekly twilight training sessions.
