School Direct

School Direct is a school-based approach to teacher training, which in many ways mirrors the life of a ‘real’ teacher, as you are based in school from the very start of the training and for the majority of the course.  The School Direct training at Newman runs alongside existing PGCE and undergraduate programmes.  When you successfully complete the course, you are awarded a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE with QTS) with the opportunity to attain additional Masters’ credits.
