School Direct 2019-20 To Open Tuesday 9 October!

Yes, it's that time of year again - only earlier!


The DfE have confirmed the opening date of the UCAS portal as Tuesday 9 October.  All courses will be searchable on UCAS from Saturday 6 October with the application portal being fully open the following Tuesday.


As our current group of trainees begin their first school placements, it seems incredible to think that only a year ago (actually slightly less, as the portal opened in November) we were meeting them at the various recruitment events around the region!  But we have been delighted to see that our recruitment paid off and we have 19 superb candidates who have already distinguished themselves in the short few weeks they have been on the course.


With the excellence of last year's recruits on show, it is only natural that we are excited about starting again and look forward to meeting our next cohort of recruits.
