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.

 

School Direct (salaried) courses normally take a year to complete, and are a great choice if you want to stay in the world of work. 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. These may make more financial sense to you than a School Direct (salaried) course, where you’ll be paid and taxed as an unqualified teacher.
