Education Teaching Alliance Lewisham (ETAL) have now had three successful years of running the School Direct programme. All of our trainees successfully completed their training and are now in their first, second or third year of teaching. This year, 2016-17, we have seven trainees placed in schools in the London Boroughs of Lewisham and Bromley.
How to apply
If you wish to start training in September 2017 you will need to apply through UCAS. For the first time next year, 2017-18, we will be running both the School Direct Salaried and Tuition Fee pathways to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Registration opens on Tuesday 18th October 2016. Enter Education Teaching Alliance Lewisham into the search engine and then choose your preferred schools. If your application is successful, you will be invited to interview and complete other tasks at your chosen school or a school within our Alliance.
No matter which route you choose to become a primary teacher, there is plenty that you can do to find out more about School Direct and to prepare your application.
