Schools Direct - Primary Route - Recruiting now for 2019-2020

Springwell Junior School manages the London West Alliance Primary SCITT in partnership with Lampton School, training teachers via the salaried Schools Direct route. Recruiting high quality graduates who are employed as unqualified teachers for one year in local participating primary schools. Most weeks trainees spend four days in school and one day training at St Mary’s University, gaining Qualified Teacher Status at the end of the programme. The scheme is open to all graduates with a first class or second class honours degree, including teaching assistants or support staff already employed by a school. The host school may offer a current trainee a permanent teaching post during or at the end of the programme, but there is no contractual obligation. There are six trainees currently employed in four local schools. Next year there is capacity to take 10 graduates or more. Recruitment is open - to find out more visit Lampton SCITT.

Primary Subject Leader Networks – “I really like the idea of subject specialists leading subject leader meetings.”

Deep Dive Subject Leader Training – “Thank you for the very detailed and thorough subject leader checklist. It is an extremely useful and much necessary exercise. It's been an eye opener. Thank you”
