About the training programme


The Aspire School Direct programme is full time over the academic year 2017/18 (September - June). This programme enables trainees to gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Education, which can be used as 60 credits towards a Masters award in the future.

Participants will have mentor support and a comprehensive professional development programme (both school and university based).

Trainees will complete two placements at different partnership schools.

Trainees will also access a diverse range of training opportunities through School Experience days in all four Aspire schools. These will provide trainees with an understanding and experience of a range of educational contexts such as Behaviour Managements, working with EAL children, use of Interactive Whiteboards, SEN and Inclusion, Planning and The Wow factor!

The tuition fee for the Aspire School Direct course is £9000 but participants will be able to access student loans, and depending on grade of degree, may be eligible for a bursary.
