Train to Teach

South Bromsgrove High Teaching School Alliance is a successful and well-established provider for School Direct Initial Teacher Training. We offer training placements within friendly, supportive and high achieving settings at both primary and secondary level.

We welcome applicants from a range of backgrounds, including 3rd year under-graduates, career seekers and career changers. 

All teacher training programmes run from September to June and incorporate two school placements along with a comprehensive professional studies programme delivered in schools by serving, experienced teachers.

September 2020 - We are offering training programmes in the following areas:

What do applicants need?

A degree or higher from a United Kingdom higher education institution or equivalent qualification.   Applicants with a degree not related to their preferred subject area will be considered.

All applicants will need to undertake a skills test in literacy and numeracy prior to starting the course.  This is completed once the application and interview process is complete and an offer of a place has been made.  We can offer support and guidance in approaching these tests.


This School Direct route allows you to achieve QTS and a PGCE qualification as well as credits towards Masters Accreditation. There will be opportunities to complete the Masters following your training year.

Generous bursaries are available for some shortage subjects. Visit for further details.

If you want to discuss training to teach either on the School Direct or PGCE route, contact Andrea Taylor who will be happy to talk through your options.
