Schools Direct Vacancies 2019-2020


Schools Direct Allocations Partner Schools 2020 – 2021

At Patcham High we are offering 14 Schools Direct places next academic year.   The Schools Direct training route is very similar to the PGCE however you do spend slightly longer in your main school.

This pathway is often preferred by candidates that have industry, or previous relevant work, experience. All applicants apply through UCAS and Hove Park School is the local Lead School.

A real benefit of the Schools Direct route is that you are more in control of your main school placement. Although you must still apply via UCAS, your application is passed on to all schools with available places and then schools will call candidates in to interview.  The candidate then choses the school they wish to train in.

During the interview process at Patcham High, you will receive a tour of the school, teach a small group an activity, and take part in an interview with the Headteacher, Head of Department and Professional Tutor.

All the Schools Direct places below are subject to you meeting the entry requirements set by the universities.  Please see their relevant websites for more information, and you will need to be interviewed, and accepted, by the university.

In addition to this you must pass the Professional Skills Tests prior to commencing the course.

We welcome you popping in for a chat or to gain some school experience.

For more information on our teacher training process, please see https://www.patchamhigh.brighton-hove.sch.uk/learning/teacher-training/

All our places are for the ‘Tuition’ or ‘Training’ Route, they are not the ‘Salaried’ route, however there are bursaries available. (See links below for more details)
