School Direct Provision

The University of Exeter offers three distinct routes of School Direct PGCE provision with lead schools deciding which route they want their School Direct trainees to follow. The three routes are:


1. School Direct training programme (fee paying distance learning). Trainees are based entirely in schools for the academic year. They are registered with the university and are eligible for training bursaries and student loans. The Masters modules are delivered by distance learning, through two online 30-credit modules, plus other online tools.

2. School Direct training programme (salaried). Trainees are employed by a school as an unqualified teacher and are based entirely in school for the academic year. They are registered with the university for the programme, but are not eligible for training bursaries or loans and do not pay tuition fees. The Masters modules are delivered by distance learning, through two online 30-credit modules, plus other online tools, as above.

3. School Direct @Exeter. Trainees apply for the SD training programme and attend the taught PGCE programme at the university as ‘infill’ trainees, additional to quota. They are registered with the university and are eligible for training bursaries and student loans.They are based in school in September, before the taught course and in periods of non-contact time during the autumn term. The length and timing of the second school placement is agreed with the lead school (minimum of 6 weeks).
