What We Are Looking For

To get the most out of this course, you will need to be enthusiastic about working with children, and possess an ability to relate to them. On the course, you will be encouraged to develop good working relationships with teachers and their pupils. The School Direct programmes, whilst a training programme, provides a sustained school experience throughout the school year and the opportunity to be fully immersed in the school community.
