What is School Direct?

School Direct is a way of training teachers which puts schools at the centre of the process.  Our well-established School Direct programme, led by Mottram St Andrew Primary Academy for the Silk Alliance, will give you the benefit of extended training within the school context, with supportive placements in good and outstanding schools. This is combined with the highest quality training from experienced tutors at Manchester University. Teacher training at Manchester University is Ofsted 'Outstanding'. Silk Alliance believes that the joint partnership between the school and the University gives trainees the best of both worlds.
