With Essex Teacher Training the School Direct (Tuition Fee) trainees follow exactly the same programme and training plan as the SCITT trainees.

  • Training in two schools
  • Possible Bursary for some subjects if you meet the NCTL requirements
  • Generic Teaching and Learning Pedagogy and phase / subject specific training
  • Outcome is QTS with PGCE / Masters Level 7 credits

School Direct (salaried) follow a slightly different training plan

  • Employed by one school who then release you for a brief period of training in a second school
  • Reduced number of Generic Teaching and Learning Pedagogy and phase / subject specific training (with the option to buy-in for more). The core entitlement is reduced as it is expected that as a salaried trainee you already have some experience
  • Outcome is QTS with the option to buy into the PGCE / Masters Level 7 credits

Main difference is in how you apply:

School Direct (salaried) and School Direct (tuition fee) you apply directly to the Lead School
