School Direct FAQ
The School Direct course is a 1 year full-time, route into teaching delivered in partnership with the University of Cumbria.
The majority of time on our PGCE courses is spent on placement in our alliance schools. In addition, there are a number of training days which may take place in our Preston based Training Centre, in alliance schools or at the Lancaster Campus of the University of Cumbria.
