Further information

The Portsmouth Teaching School Alliance teacher training programme offers a strong support network across a range of Secondary subjects and Primary placements from mainstream to Special Educational Needs (SEN).

Teaching is a highly demanding career and we want our trainees to feel supported, confident and well prepared for their future. We offer a continuum of support for our teacher's career development, including our fantastic Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT)programme, the Recently Qualified Teaching (RQT) course through to middle and senior management schemes.

We work in partnership with our alliance schools and HEIs to produce the best opportunity for outstanding graduates who plan to train to teach.

There are two routes to School Direct training. 

  • School Direct – Salaried
  • School Direct – Non-salaried

Trainees on this scheme are awarded a PGCE (which includes QTS) on completion.

We are helping to shape new school partnerships in teacher training by supporting the development of the highest quality school placements and trainee mentoring across the alliance, and working with our providers to ensure that selection and training is bespoke meeting the needs of Portsmouth schools. Our objectives include ensuring that trainees have access to outstanding lessons and teachers for observation and joint planning.
