This year we are offering School Direct Salaried places with our Crispin School Direct Alliance. These places will be available in a limited number of schools across the county, who are looking for strong applicants in shortage subjects.

Trainees on this programme will be employees of their training school, from 1st September to 30th June and will be paid at no less than point one of the unqualified teacher pay scale (full-time contract from Sept 1st to June 30th), this equates to £16,262 per annum (approximate figure only), please be aware salaried trainees are only contracted for 10 months. 

Remember! School Direct Salaried trainees can only train in maintained schools.

It is a suggested requirement that applicants to the School Direct salaried programme must have worked for three years before beginning the programme, this is at the provider's discretion. This does not have to be within an educational setting. We only offer SD salaried places in the following subjects:

School Direct Salaried trainees wishing to submit their assignments at Master’s level, leading to the award of a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with 60 M level credits, will be required to pay the accreditation fee charged by the Bath Spa University. This will be in the region of £500. Those trainees who do not wish to have their assignments assessed at M level will only be awarded QTS on successful completion of their course.

School Direct Salaried trainees are not required to pay any course fees, unless they undertake the PGCE aspect of the course.
