JFS welcomes applications for the School Direct Programme.
In partnership with the Institute of Education, we are now recruiting for placements commencing in September 2013, in English and Geography (two of our most successful and innovative departments).
What is School Direct?
School Direct is a new teacher training model where schools select and recruit applicants. There is an expectation, though not a guarantee, that successful completion of the one-year programme will lead to employment in the training school. The programme is open to all graduates and is funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee through Student Finance. Training bursaries are available from the Teaching Agency.
