Applications for School Direct 2020
WCTSA offer non-salaried School Direct places with QTS with a minimum of 24 weeks in at least two schools.
For general information about teacher training, including funding options, please visit the Get Into Teaching website.
How to apply
Applications for Initial Teacher Training must be made through UCAS online: https://www.ucas.com/postgraduate/teacher-training/ucas-teacher-training-apply-and-track Applications for School Direct places starting in September 2020 open on 8 October 2019.
For each of the subjects showing both UCAS codes below, applicants can choose either School Direct @Exeter or School Direct Distance. You do not need to apply to us using both codes. If you wish to change the training route after you have applied this may be possible and can be discussed further at the interview stage.
Further information on each of the courses, including subject specific entry requirements, is available on the Gov.uk search facility: https://find-postgraduate-teacher-training.education.gov.uk/start/location Please search by Provider: West Country Teaching School Alliance.
Please check the entry requirements for your chosen course before applying for a School Direct place with us. All applications are screened initially by the University of Exeter PGCE Admissions department to check suitability for the programme. Suitable applicants will then be contacted by the West Country Teaching School Alliance and invited to attend an interview.

We will accept applications until June 2020. All successful trainees will attend an induction day in early July.
Whilst we cannot guarantee employment, we aim to employ the majority of our trainees who train to teach as part of the School Direct programme within our Alliance of schools. For admissions enquiries specifically about our School Direct provision, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
