School Direct

Welcome from the School Direct Lead, Lisa Howard.

As School Direct Lead I would like to introduce you to the School Direct programmes that we offer at Edge Hill University.

School Direct is a school-led route into Initial Teacher Education (ITE) which involves a close partnership between Edge Hill University as your accredited ITE provider and a lead school, along with other schools within the school direct cluster.

As the accredited teacher training provider for School Direct, at Edge Hill University we are delighted to work in close partnership with our School Direct partners listed below.

Each School Direct programme offers its own unique route into teaching and teaching practices are offered in specific geographical locations. Please follow the links below to find out more.

Should you choose to train to teach through the School Direct route, we very much look forward to receiving your application, and to working with you, as you begin your training.
