Applications for School Direct 2019
WCTSA is able to offer non-salaried School Direct places with QTS with a minimum of 24 weeks in at least two schools.
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.
Whilst we cannot guarantee employment, we aim to employ the majority of our trainees who learn 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
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.
