School Direct

The Langton Schools' Alliance is working with Christchurch University to offer excellent teacher training through the School Direct training programme.  You can train as a secondary or primary teacher to gain QTS (Qualified Teacher Status).

School Direct is a hands on, practical school based training programme which allows student teachers to work in their school from day 1. This ensures that you are able to work through an entire school year in your school and really feel part of the learning community.

As a result of offering places in a range of schools, we are able to provide student teachers with a range of experiences for the contrasting school placement across our partnership schools as the year progresses.

For 2019-20, the following schools will offer School Direct places:
