Want to teach?

If you are interested in becoming a teacher and want your training to be based in a school, where you can be fully immersed in the life of a teacher from day one, a school-led training course could be for you.

As a trainee teacher, based in a school environment, you would experience first hand, how hugely exciting and rewarding life as a teacher can be.

We provide teacher training through the School Direct Programme, which is led by the Marches Academy Trust. The Marches Academy Trust is currently in partnership with the University of Chester for School Direct. However, all training and school based learning is delivered locally in Shropshire.

If you would like to find out more about teacher training, please visit one of our drop-in sessions every Monday from 16:30 – 18.00 at Oakmeadow Primary School, Shrewsbury. Please go to the main Reception, where you will be greeted by Mrs Polly Williamson, who will be able to answer any questions you may have about the programme and the application process.

Alternatively, for more information on training to teach, please follow the link below to the Alliance of Leading Learning (the Marches hub for School Direct)
