School Direct (salaried) QTS

Trainees who successfully complete the School Direct (salaried) route will be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Trainees are employees of their school for the year and are usually paid at point 1 of the unqualified teacher pay scale (currently £16,626). There are no fees on this route and trainees are not eligible for bursaries or scholarships.

For 2018/19 we are offering salaried places as follows:

  • Design and Technology (UCAS code 2LCP)
  • English (UCAS code 2BF8)


Applications should be made via UCASTT. For September 2018 entry, UCASTT opens on 26 October 2017.

Preference for salaried places is usually given to applicants with three years of work experience (which could be research) relevant to their teaching subject.

I have finally done it - I have changed career and become what I was meant to be! It's the best feeling in the world!
