School Direct

Please call 020 8501 2089 for information on applying for a place on our course.

The Forest Independent Primary Collegiate is able to support School Direct trainees. School Direct offers a route to Qualified Teacher Status which is an accepted qualification throughout England and enables you to work as a teacher in England. 

There are two routes through the School Direct programme, salaried and unsalaried. With the salaried route, the salary will be negotiated with the employing school. Schools are obliged to pay for the days worked in the employing school. 

The School Direct unsalaried route also offers a PGCE, which is recognised outside the UK and therefore qualifies you to teach outside the UK. The course code for the PGCE is 2DLG. The unsalaried route has a fee of £9000.

Applications for both salaried and unsalaried routes are made through the UCAS website. 

Once an application has been submitted the next step is to take the Professional Skills Test.
