Watch our video clip below for personal accounts of training through School Direct with Riding Forward TSA
School Direct PGCE courses generally last a year, and you’ll train in at least two good schools.
This course offers a brilliant option if you want to train and learn ‘on the job’ – but you shouldn’t worry about being thrown in at the deep end. You’ll be part of a team from the very start, receiving intensive support from experienced teachers and mentors. That means you won’t be teaching classes unsupported until the school thinks you’re ready.
Riding Forward TSA work with the University of Hull as our HEI provider, full details of their PGCE can be found at :

Message from Danny Norton – School Direct student 2014/15
“The Riding Forward Teaching Training programme through School Direct has provided me with the tools and support to become an outstanding teacher and secure a job following completion of my ITT.
For me, School Direct is the only route into teaching as it allows you to create a rapport with staff and children, whilst providing you with a realistic perspective of life as a teacher, from Day One!”.
