School Direct is a school-led training programme for graduates who want hands-on training in a school. On a School Direct course you’ll feel part of our school family, and get the chance to learn on the job in at least two different schools, learning from experienced colleagues and putting your new skills into practice from day one.

Excalibur TSA’s School Direct courses have been designed by our alliance schools in partnership with Bath Spa University and Bristol University, based on the skills we are looking for in a newly qualified teacher. Our School Direct courses last a year and all result in QTS awarded with a PGCE. Trainees will be required to pay tuition fees for these courses (£9,250 in 17/18) but may be eligible for student finance.
