Teacher Training

SCHOOL DIRECT – Train to teach with us!


Shires Teaching School Alliance is a partnership between Studley High School (the lead school), University of Worcester and ten other local outstanding or good schools, offering the opportunity to train to teach through a one year post graduate programme.

By choosing ‘School Direct’ for your teacher training, you are opting to spend a significant time in class, putting to practice the ‘theory’ of learning and applying the knowledge gained on a daily basis. You’ll become part of the team, treated as a professional and supported throughout.

You will experience teaching in at least two schools within the alliance, mentored all the way. Your timetable will build as you start to develop your teacher toolkit. Once you successfully complete your teacher training programme, you will achieve QTS (qualified teacher status) and a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education).
