Virtual School Experience Taster Day

Cardinal Hume Catholic School

School Direct – A New Pathway into Teaching

The School Direct pathway will allow you to work alongside outstanding practitioners from Cardinal Hume Catholic School and our other partner schools. The trainee will start the year in school on the first day of term and work the life of a teacher for three terms. Trainees are treated as members of staff and benefit for a professional life that reflects the school ethos and community. All trainees will be registered for the PGCE.

Entry Criteria

All entrants will have attained a minimum grade C in GCSE English and Mathematics. Entrants must hold a minimum of a 2:2 degree from a UK university or a degree from CNAA, or a recognised equivalent qualification. For entrants with degrees from overseas, please contact N.A.R.I.C.
