School Direct - Secondary
The UCAS portal for applications to this partnership will open on October 27th 2015 and you are able to view our training programmes on UCAS now.
Davenant Foundation School acts as a hub school for the School Direct Programme and, with alliance schools, will be recruiting trainees for 2015/2016 from November 2014. Trainees are recruited and placed in other secondary schools across Epping Forest and Harlow. HCUK by tes will award Qualified Teacher Status and will award a PGCE (the latter will be accredited through HCUK’s partnership with UEL) for secondary route trainees.
Routes and recruitment:
From September 2013, School Direct has offered a new “salaried” route to replace the GTP route. This is an employment based route for high quality graduates with three or more years’ career experience. The trainee will be employed as an unqualified teacher for the duration of their training and receive a salary. The salary is expected to reflect subject priorities with Physics, Maths, Chemistry, MFL and Computing attracting the higher salaries. The other subjects which would attract a bursary are Primary Maths, Secondary English, Geography, History, Religious Education, Music, Biology and Design Technology.
This partnership offers the School Direct (salaried) uplift for Maths, Physics and Computing and we are able to offer a Salary of £30,000 for successful applicants.
The recruitment process commences with our Teacher Recruitment Information Event which takes place in the autumn term, when all routes into teaching are represented. All ITT applicants must have English and Mathematics at GCSE Grade C or above. The expectation at Secondary level is that successful candidates will have spent at least three days working in a School on a voluntary basis and will at some stage be asked to teach part of a lesson so that we can judge potential.
