What is School Direct

School Direct is a process whereby schools work very closely with an ITT provider like ourselves to train our future teachers to an excellent standard.

The school or their partner schools will be involved in selecting the trainee on the interview day. Schools will have the opportunity to customise the training to suit both their needs and those of the trainee. We have always worked closely with other school groups and encouraging collaborative working.

HART of Yorkshire SCITT works with School Direct partnerships at the Yorkshire Inclusive Teaching School Alliance in Leeds.

The quality of the newly qualified teachers graduating from the programme is so much higher than anything we have seen from other local providers. It's as though they have already been teaching for two years.
