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.
I was offered a job at the end of March. The headteacher had spotted me at the SCITT interview a year before and had been watching me for a whole year. I had my second placement in their school in January and loved it. It was like they were competing with the other schools for me to apply to them.
