What is School Direct?

School Direct is a school-led route for teacher training, within the Cheshire Vale Teaching School Alliance in partnership with LJMU which offers practical, hands-on training; the course has very high rates of employment and trainee satisfaction. Upon completion of the course you will be awarded a PGCE with QTS.

Why Chose Cheshire Vale TSA?

The Cheshire Vale TSA is a group of 16 schools plus HEI providers and key partners from across Cheshire and the Wirral. As an Alliance it is our mission to provide high quality, school based initial teacher training. We know our provision ensures trainees feel fully prepared for life in the classroom and a career in teaching.

Our Alliance Partnership consists of Secondary and Primary Schools. Trainee Teachers will have the benefit of working with a strong alliance of schools during their training year. Placements will be in one of our Alliance Schools, who have a strong history of highly successful teacher-training, where you will receive intensive support from experienced teachers and mentors.

Schools within our Alliance cover a large area including Chester, Northwich, The Wirral, Ellesmere Port, Helsby and rural Cheshire and can provide a variety of teaching experiences in a range of schools. You could train to teach at any of the following schools listed below.
