Course content

The School Direct Programme (Salaried) is a new route into teaching at both primary and secondary levels. Participating schools, or clusters of schools that join together, are allocated a set number of student-teacher places which can be applied for. Students will earn a salary while they train.

About this programme

Students will be part of a school team from the start and will receive intensive support from experienced teachers in the classroom. Opportunities will exist to build networks with fellow trainees. This route leads to the award of QTS (Qualified Teacher Status).

There are two compulsory school placements. Students are expected to complete the associated tasks, and to build a portfolio of evidence during the academic year to demonstrate they have met national teaching standards.

Students do not undertake academic credits on this programme. However, all components will need to be assessed to gain QTS.

Core modules

  • Professional Practice

Optional modules

  • There are no optional modules for this programme

Placement

As part of the programme students will spend time in placement at a school or college, during which time their teaching practice will be supported by a school subject tutor and mentor. For this programme students will spend the majority of the programme in school, employed as an unqualified teacher.

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered via a series of lectures and workshop at the UCL Institute of Education for 15 days (10 days' Professional Studies and five days subject-specific training) spread over the autumn and spring terms. The placement schools are responsible for providing an additional 45 days of training activities, alongside the practical teaching experience. Students are assessed on their practical teaching of Physics and their progress in achieving the standards for Qualified Teacher Status by gathering evidence in the form of a portfolio.

Further information on modules and programme structure is available on the department website: School Direct (Salaried): Physics QTS/Teacher Training

Careers

Graduates of UCL Institute of Education's Physics teacher training programmes are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as classroom and instrumental teachers in school settings, while others have jobs as music educators, workshop leaders and consultants in national music hubs and local authorities. Graduates in this area can also be found working as learning and participation programme and workshop leaders in professional orchestras and arts organisations.

Employability

Most of the student teachers trained through this route are employed by the training school or within the cluster after completing programme. The nature of this route to Qualified Teacher Status is for schools to train student teachers who are committed to the values and ethos of the school or academy and wish to develop their teaching career within the school or cluster which invested in their training.

Why study this programme at UCL?

The UCL Institute of Education (IOE) has been providing first-class teaching training, in partnership with schools and colleges for over 100 years and all of their initial teacher training programmes have been rated as outstanding. Founded in 1902, as a teacher training college in London, the IOE is a world-class research and teaching institute. IOE graduates are highly sought after in schools and colleges throughout London and the UK. The central location in historic Bloomsbury means that you are in the heart of London.

There are over 40 schools and colleges in the Greater London area and beyond participating in the School Direct (Salaried) programme. 

Each of these offer student-teacher places in at least one national curriculum subject area and many of them have places across a broad range of subjects.
