Initial Teacher Training Primary & Secondary (School Direct)
Whitley Bay High is the lead school in our alliance for applicants who wish to apply for secondary and primary School Direct places following the tuition route. School Direct is a route into teaching which allows participants the opportunity to work closely with schools to gain Qualified Teacher Status.
Anyone wishing to teach must complete initial teacher training – ITT. You can complete your Primary or Secondary ITT through the WBTSA, an alliance in the North East of England, that has a national reputation for the quality of its Teaching and Learning, innovative and rigorous training it offers its staff exceptional levels of support for emerging teachers. Our programme means you will be in the classroom from day 1, learning first-hand the knowledge and skills needed to become an outstanding teacher. We work in conjunction with both Newcastle and Northumbria Universities and on successful completion of the programme you will be awarded either a Professional Graduate Certificate (Level 6) in Education or a PGCE (Level 7) with qualified teacher status (QTS.)
For September 2019 entry, please apply via UCAS. Applications open on the 9th October 2018.
