St Mary & St Thomas’ CE Primary School

stmarygrads.jpgSt Mary & St Thomas’ Teaching School has developed an exciting School Direct programme aimed at recruiting and training high quality aspiring primary school teachers.

Working in partnership with Liverpool Hope University we provide our trainees with a strong school-centred postgraduate route into teaching but with the added benefit of studying for a Masters level for a Postgraduate Certificate as well.

In the last three years we have successfully trained 36 students with 100% employment rate and we have recruited 14 trainees to begin in September 2016. Due to the success of the programme we now intend to recruit 30 trainees to begin in September 2017. 

Trainees on our School Direct programme will be allocated a school in our Alliance, all of which are good or outstanding. The majority of time will be spent in a ‘home’ school with additional teaching in an ‘away’ school in the Alliance.

The taught element of our School Direct programme will be delivered by outstanding trainers from our teaching School partnership – Headteachers, Specialist Leaders in Education, experienced consultants and outstanding practitioners. The teaching at Masters Level will be delivered by Liverpool Hope.

This is a fabulous route into teaching with us equipping our trainees with the experience and skills needed to become outstanding teachers.
