Once again, we hardly seem to have started the new academic year when another round of School Direct recruitment begins. And though we get excited every year in anticipation of the excellent candidates we will recruit, we are doubly excited this year as the Pandemic restrictions ease and people begin to think about their future careers more optimistically. So far, we have had a number of enquiries and visits from people interested in our School Direct programme and all before the DfE portal was even open for searching! So if this is a measure of things to come, we feel confident that once again we will be privileged to recruit our usual crop of outstanding teacher trainees.
The application process is slightly different this year, with all applications being made through the DfE Apply portal rather than UCAS. But even though the application method may have changed, we are confident that the same care and consideration and the usual outstanding standard of our partnership will shine through to recruit and train another cohort of outstanding future teachers. And in anticipation of this, we will be managing a stand at the Trinity Open Day this Saturday (16 October) so if you have any questions for us, or you just want to treat yourself to a chocolate from our tin, please come and join us, we would love to see you there.
