There are two routes into teaching through School Direct. One route is School Direct (training), which is unsalaried and is open to all graduates. The course fee for the University of Warwick is £9,250. This includes the award of the PGCE qualification. Tuition fee loans are available to EU and UK candidates. Bursaries are available in some subject areas as well as from some professional institutions. Further information can be found at:
The second route is School Direct (salaried). Schools provide an unqualified teacher’s salary. (There is an expectation, for both routes that candidates will attend training at the university prior to the commencement of the academic year.)
The salaried trainee may be expected to pay the PGCE fees of £2,000 to the University.
The training teacher will be employed by the school for the duration of the course.
