Application Guidance

With School Direct you're selected for training by our group of schools in partnership with Northumbria University. You'll be based in a school from our established network and also study one day per week at Northumbria University. If you're successful in your training, there is the possibility you may be employed in one of the schools in the partnership, depending on available vacancies.
