At Creative Education Trust our teacher training ethos echoes our commitment to the 13,500 children and young people in our schools: to promote creative, integrated and proactive thinking, ready for the challenges of the 21st Century. Creative Education Trust is committed to offering trainee teachers the best opportunities to grow and learn surrounded by supportive and experienced colleagues.

School Direct is one of the teacher training routes offered in our schools. Our School Direct programme is delivered in partnership with a number prestigious training partners with long-established courses in their regions. These are:

Take a look at the courses which currently have availability.(note: not available until 4 October 2022)

Government bursary funding is available to help people who wish to train in some subjects. You will find more information about fees and funding at the Get Into Teaching website.

If you already have 2 years of classroom experience (such as Teaching Assistants or Cover Supervisors) you may wish to consider a post graduate teaching apprenticeship. Teaching apprentices do not pay fees to study and earn a salary whilst developing their teaching skills in the classroom. Apprentices split their time between school and University with at least 20% of their time being spent on study.
