School Direct is a Teacher Training scheme designed to allow outstanding schools to recruit and train their own teachers of the future.

The Minster Teaching School Alliance has a strong track record of outstanding outcomes, employment rates and high levels of academic attainment.

Trainees will be based in school but will receive training throughout the year Higher Education partners, the University of Nottingham and/or Nottingham Trent University. Trainees will also have the opportunity to experience a second placement elsewhere within the Minster Teaching School Alliance.

The Minster School has a long record of partnership with our Higher Education partners in helping to train teachers. School Direct gives us the chance to select and train our own outstanding teachers of the future.  


Following your submission your application is considered by the university and the school using the information you provide, as well as interviews and activities designed to establish your aptitude for teaching.

If you are considering applying for a School Direct place it is advisable to visit the school you are applying to.
