School Direct (salaried)

You could earn a salary by training on a School Direct (salaried) programme. If you’re already working at or have an existing relationship with a school and want to take the next step, then you may want to consider this route.

 

Trainees on the salaried programme are recruited and employed directly by schools, and often continue teaching in their school following training. 

The cost of your training to achieve QTS is covered by the school – check with your training provider to find out if this also includes a PGCE and/or Master’s-level credits.

Salary

The amount you earn will be dependent on the school you train in and the subject you’re teaching. 

Remember, tax-free bursaries and scholarships are available in some subjects on both school-led and university-led courses . On a School Direct (salaried) course, you’ll be paid and taxed as an unqualified teacher, so you should compare the bursary rate for your chosen subject with the salary on offer via School Direct (salaried) to work out which route would be best for your circumstances.
