This intensive, full time programme leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) alongside your academic award.

Although you will spend the majority of your time in school there are University-based training sessions at the IM Marsh campus. These include: a week long summer school at the end of August and some weekly campus sessions. Some sessions may be delivered by and in Partner schools.

As this is a postgraduate course, you should expect to undertake a significant amount of independent study and preparation, not only to support your course assignments, but also your school-based work. This intense programme is tightly focused on providing you with the skills and knowledge required. Tutorial support is an important part of the process and you will receive a personalised service that will enable you to set targets and achieve to your highest potential.

Your personal tutor will meet with you regularly to monitor your progress, provide guidance and advice and set targets for your development.

You will also be allocated a teacher mentor who will organise and supervise your school-based training. Your mentor will be supported by an LJMU tutor who will visit your school several times during the year to monitor your progress.

A range of secondary subjects are available for salaried School Direct programmes.

You can search all subjects offered through LJMU School Direct Salaried routes via the UCAS Teacher Training search pages.

The University element of the programme is based around modules focusing on:

  • developing your subject and pedagogical knowledge in order to support you in becoming a reflective, skilled and effective practitioner
  • critiquing effective approaches to learning, teaching and assessment in your subject and/or age phase
  • promoting your ability to design inclusive, engaging and impactful sequences of lessons to meet the diverse needs of all learners
  • informed and deliberate use of educational research to improve pupils' learning
