Train to teach in schools on the Yorkshire coast & be the inspiration a child needs....

Have you thought about a career in teaching?

If you or someone you know are thinking about a career in teaching then look no further than the School Direct programme offered by The Scarborough Teaching Alliance

School Direct is an exciting, hands on, school-led training programme giving graduate trainees the opportunity to learn from experienced practitioners in schools. 

This is a full-time, one-year course, during which students will complete academic assignments, gain subject knowledge and apply their understanding of child development in class, leading to a PGCE with QTS.

School Direct offers the same academic rigor as university-led courses and students may be eligible for a training bursary and can apply for the same financial support, such as student loans. 

Starting in September 2019 you could be training for an exciting new career in teaching.  Offering Lower Primary (3-7), Upper Primary (5-11) and Secondary (11-16)  – Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, English, Geography, History, Modern Foreign Languages & PE

Scarborough Teaching Alliance is a cross phase alliance led by Scalby Secondary School (Scalby Learning Trust) & Childhaven Community Nursery School.  The alliance offers a unique opportunity to train as a teacher on a truly collaborative programme involving schools on the North Yorkshire Coast and surrounding areas.


We can offer placements in nursery, reception and key stage 1. Students will access the well-regarded Advanced Early Years PGCE provided by the University of Hull, leading to Qualified Teacher Status
