Secondary School Direct

Our Secondary School Direct Courses 2022 – 2023 are now open. Applications need to be submitted through Apply which can be accessed here:

Bury Schools Alliance (BSA) School Direct student teachers receive regular training delivered by expert teachers and well-qualified mentors in our alliance of Bury schools. This is further enhanced by attendance on a number of days at our partner University, Manchester Metropolitan University. With support from experienced mentors and leaders from BSA, MMU and placement schools, trainees will be supported to put new skills into practice in the classroom.

"Even though I had high expectations based upon what I found out at first I can honestly say the support from BTSA has been amazing. Despite the difficulties of training during COVID-19 I've always felt supported from everything from induction to teaching in school, to help with job applications. Fantastically comprehensive support from beginning to end and I'll certainly miss this after the end of the academic year (although I will definitely stay in touch!)."

2020 - 2021 Secondary School Direct Student

During the PGCE year there are two placements in two different schools within the Alliance. Our students are trained and mentored by outstanding specialist teachers in each subject area in successful departments and Key Stages. Our courses will equip trainees with the skills they need to teach the KS3 and KS4 curriculum (children aged from 11-16 years) in a chosen subject area.

 

In addition to school-based training for Qualified Teacher Status, our successful student teachers achieve a PGCE with 60 Masters’ level credits.

 

Assessment is by coursework. The purpose of assessment is to complement and build on other work on the course. The assessment items are an integral part of the learning process, thus helping trainees to enter their first appointment with confidence and competence. For this reason, all assessment is related to work in schools.
