Education Teaching Alliance Lewisham (ETAL) have now had three successful years running the School Direct programme with our training provider Bromley Schools’ Collegiate. All of our trainees successfully completed their training and are now in their first, second or third year of teaching. This year, 2018-19, we have 13 trainees placed in schools in the London Boroughs of Lewisham and Bromley.

How to apply

If you wish to start training in England in September 2019 you will need to apply through UCAS. As last year, we will be running both the School Direct Salaried and Tuition Fee pathways to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Registration is open for Apply 2 now. Search for Education Teaching Alliance Lewisham on Find postgraduate teacher training and then choose your preferred schools. You will be redirected to UCAS to complete your application. 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.

We recommend that you register with UCAS to receive information, advice and regular updates about initial teacher training. We also recommend that you access the Department of Education website Get Into Teaching for support, advice and to explore your options.
