School Direct Advert


All Saints Teaching School Alliance is an innovative, dynamic and forward thinking Teaching School.  Our programme awards both QTS and a PGCE on successful completion of the programme.

United through our core values of Excellence and Empowerment, we work with a wide range of diverse and high quality primary schools and academies from a variety of different contexts including: multi-academy trusts, church, community, local authority, small, large, seaside, urban and rural locations. Our Teacher Education team have four years experience of designing and delivering the School Direct programme and year on year we have had an extremely high success rate of School Direct students gaining employment upon completion of our programme Whilst we do not guarantee teaching posts to School Direct graduates, our alliance schools are fully involved in the programme as they are committed to ‘growing’ the next generation of outstanding teachers for their own schools.

We work together to share expertise, experience, talent and capacity to improve the learning and achievement of young people across the South West. We believe that every child has the right to be taught by an excellent teacher in an excellent school that nurtures, challenges and supports their potential. Together, we have a track record of developing and supporting new, talented teachers into the profession, through high quality training, delivered by excellent practitioners in our schools and universities.
