School Direct Primary and Secondary Places for 2019/2020


School Direct places are available at a number of KCSP's primary and secondary academies to start in September 2020:


School Direct is an academy-led teacher training pathway that offers an alternative route into teaching, and in conjunction with KCSP's academies offers great opportunities for training to become a teacher.  Using KCSP's network of academies and highly skilled practitioners we are able to support learning teachers to develop, in conjunction with our Initial Teacher Training (ITT) partner at St Mary’s University, Twickenham.


The School Direct pathway offers non-salaried places, together with limited salaried places achieving QTS with PGCE qualification. 


This training will enable trainees to work at KCSP academies which are rated as 'Good' or 'Outstanding' by OFSTED. There is a link below which details all of the academies within the Trust that currently offer training placements.


For more information on this pathway and to register your interest at our upcoming information evening (full details TBA) please contact Administrator Julie Thomas:
