School Direct Routes into Teaching
School Direct Primary Courses
If you want a place on a salaried route you will need to undertake interviews with both the SCITT and an employing school (unless you already have a school that wants to employ you). Don’t worry though, if you are not able to secure an offer from a school we will convert your salaried place offer into a training place offer.

Middle School Training Route
Provided in collaboration with Southend Secondary SCITT, this route is ideal for those who have a passion for a particular subject, wish to teach across phases or are currently undecided about whether primary or secondary teaching is for them. If you train on this route you will do a term in primary and one in secondary and will then have the option to select where to complete your training. Your centre-based training will cover the entire primary phase and secondary to 16.
School Direct Primary or Middle School
This route is ideal for those who either want to work in special schools or have aspirations to become SENCOs in mainstream schools. You will have the chance to do at least a full term in a special school and attend additional in-school and centre-based training. Find out more about working as a SENCO here.
