Initial Teacher Training

Initial Teacher Training, including School Direct

As a Teaching School Alliance we play a fundamental role in developing a self-sustaining system where new teachers learn from the best teachers, supported through a culture of coaching and mentoring.

Our School Direct partnership is with the University of Winchester. We offer a PGCE in General Primary with SEND. We also work with a range of other local University and SCITT providers to augment their programmes with school based SEND experiences.



Are you interested in teaching Primary PGCE with SEND ? Applications for 2018-2019 will open on UCAS in November 2017

Our PGCE in General Primary is significantly enhanced with aspects of Special Educational Needs (SEN). The Programme content is delivered through four taught modules and a series of non-assessed and assessed school based placements. These placements are in both mainstream Primary and Special school settings. Trainees are guided through their learning by experienced University and school based mentors, to enable them to gain the skills and confidence to become effective, successful teachers of Primary aged children, especially those with SEN. The programme is designed for trainee teachers wishing to enter the profession in either mainstream or special school settings.

Trainees are based at Linwood School and in our partner schools within Linwood Teaching School Alliance, which include primary mainstream and other local special schools. Trainees are also included in the School Direct PGCE cohort of the University.

Our partners schools support teacher trainee school experience placements, with full mentor support from the university and ourselves. For more information ( as a Frequently Asked Questions format ) see: SD School Experience FAQs.pdf
