Teach Manchester is committed to the vision of outstanding education for all children in every school. Join us as a trainee teacher to begin your career and become a part of this vision.

Teach Manchester offers a School Direct Route of Initial Teacher Training. School Direct is a year long postgraduate route to qualified teacher status which is led by a school alliance. In this route your training programme is designed by the alliance to help you meet the requirements for the award of Qualified Teacher Status and a 60 Masters Credit postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE).

Teach Manchester’s School Direct programme is designed to develop the skills our schools are looking for in a newly qualified teacher (NQT).

You’ll become a part of your main placement school team from September. You will receive intensive support from our experienced team of teachers and mentors from the beginning of your placement. You’ll build your skills through observation, reflection, and attendance at both alliance led training sessions and university led sessions. This will support you in building your skill set towards teaching whole lessons, and then onto a significant timetable by the end of the year.
