Initial Teacher Training

Outstanding Initial Teacher Training

The Wolds Teaching School Alliance School Direct programme provides an outstanding route into your teaching career in schools accross Hull and East Yorkshire. We work in close partnership with Yorkshire Wolds Teacher Training and the University of Hull’s Faculty of Education to offer trainee teachers an excellent programme that reflects our vision for ambitious, creative and inspirational teachers with limitless potential.

Successful completion of our School Direct courses will lead to qualified teacher status (QTS). In addition to this, our programme, assessed and awarded by the University of Hull, includes the opportunity to convert your accreditation into a post-graduate certificate in education (PGCE) and gain masters credits, should you wish to take your studies further.

If you are a dynamic individual with the passion and drive to become an outstanding teacher within our partnership we would like to hear from you.
