Opportunities to Train as a Secondary Teacher at Keele University

Those considering Secondary teacher training can apply through the Graduate Teacher Training Registry (GTTR) for a place on a PGCE as has been the case for many years (www.gttr.ac.uk).  An alternative route for this September is called school Direct.  Training numbers have been allocated to schools and the schools are required to work with providers such as Keele.  Applications to this route are made via the Department for Education’s (DfE) website (www.education.gov.uk/teachschooldirect). 

Keele University works with schools across Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin.  The teacher training portfolio offered at Keele has some overlap with PGCE subjects at Loughborough (Science and Mathematics) but there are a number of curriculum areas where Keele is the only Higher Education provider in this part of the Midlands. The programme undertaken by students/trainees on School Direct, with Keele, is more or less identical to the ‘standard’ programme and all successful students are awarded a PGCE.
