Painsley Catholic College School Direct Consortium

Thank you for your interest in our School Direct places available for teacher training 2017-18.

Painsley Catholic College is an outstanding 11-18 academy in the Staffordshire Moorlands. Painsley
Catholic College School Direct consortium is a group of very friendly, supportive schools, passionate about
creating the next generation of teachers. Painsley Catholic College became a National Teaching School in
2014 and is one of only 3 National Maths Hubs in the West Midlands.

We work in partnership with 3 universities (Birmingham City, Manchester Metropolitan and the University
of Derby) and KNSPS, the Keele and North Staffordshire Primary SCITT (school centre initial teacher
training) for primary training.

As a consortium, we aim to provide high quality, school based initial teacher training. We believe our
provision ensures trainees feel fully prepared for life in the classroom and a career in education. The
schools work closely with the partner universities and SCITT to ensure that our Schools Direct students gain
their Teaching Qualification giving them qualified teacher status (QTS) and a Postgraduate Certificate in
Education (PGCE). You will experience placements in 2 of our consortium schools throughout the year, as
well as opportunities to visit the other schools for educational and professional studies. There may also be
opportunities to visit our partner special school for short placements.

All our staff are exceptionally skilled and passionate practitioners and you are welcome to visit us to
discuss your chosen career.

What is School Direct?

School Direct allows participants the opportunity to work closely with schools to gain their Teaching

and relevant in school training. You will be given the opportunity to spend the majority of your time on
‘teaching practice’ at high quality school placements from across our consortium. You will also be offered a
programme of training developed and delivered by consortium schools and our HEI partners. In school,
you will be supported by a dedicated and trained mentor, as well as a professional tutor, who are school
based experienced staff. You will also have a University based tutors.

Your training lasts for one academic year (September-July).

Training through our consortium will also provide you with opportunities to develop your educational and
professional studies through school based sessions that include:

How is the School Direct Programme funded?

There are two School Direct routes (School Direct and School Direct Salaried) which are very similar in
structure, but have different funding models, details of which can be found below:

If you secure a place on this route, the tuition fees for the programme will be £9000. These fees are paid to
the University (in a series of installments across the academic year). To support you with these payments,
there are a number of different funding options available to you.

You may be eligible for a tax-free bursary or scholarship to support your training. These funding streams
are dependent on the phase/subject in which you are training your qualifications. A high degree
classification will allow you access to extra bursary funding. A Masters or PhD could also ensure you
receive further funding. See page 15-18

In addition, you could also apply for a student loan to support your payments through student finance:
http://www.studentfinance.direct.gov.uk

More information can be found at: http://www.education.gov.uk/get-into-teaching

School Direct offers 2 types of training places:

      School Direct (SD) training programme - open to all graduates, and is funded by tuition fees paid by
       the trainee
      School Direct (SDS) training programme (salaried) - for graduates with 3 or more years’ work
       experience. The trainee is employed as an unqualified teacher by a school and their salary (around
       £15,000pa) is subsidised and training costs for qualified teacher status (QTS) covered by the NCTL.
       To apply for this route you need to have had 3 years ‘full time’ industry/work experience, which
       does not have to have been in the education sector.

    1. Bursaries and scholarships are available to trainees on a fee-based teacher training course in
       England that leads to the award of qualified teacher status. Availability is dependent on your
       highest relevant academic award and the subject in which you are training to teach. To receive a
       bursary or scholarship you must be entitled to support under the Student Finance England criteria.
       Both elements will be assessed by your teacher training provider. If you have a degree from outside
       the UK, you should refer to the overseas degree equivalency table to see the bursary your degree
       may attract. You can also contact your training provider for clarification on your degree’s
       equivalency and your eligibility for a bursary and student finance.

    2. Trainees are able to apply for a teacher training scholarship with the appropriate professional body.
       Trainees in physics, maths, languages and geography will usually need a 2:1, but can still apply with
       a 2:2 and significant experience. Trainees in chemistry or computing are able to apply with a 2:2 or
       above. Scholarships are awarded in place of a bursary. Find out more.

16 | P a g e
3. Bursaries are available for trainees in French, German and Spanish. They are also available for other
       modern, community or ancient languages. The full list of eligible languages can be found on
       GOV.UK.

    4. Languages scholarships are only available if you train to teach French, German or Spanish.

    5. Bursaries are available to trainees on either primary maths specialist courses or primary general
       (with mathematics) courses with at least grade B maths A level or equivalent. Trainees on other
       primary courses may be eligible for the standard primary bursary.

        Bursaries are available to trainees on either primary maths specialist courses or primary general
        (with mathematics) courses with at least grade B maths A level or equivalent. Trainees on other
        primary courses will be eligible for the standard primary bursary.

You don’t need to apply for a bursary – if you are enrolled on a non-salaried postgraduate course and meet
the eligibility criteria, you will begin receiving payments automatically by your chosen teacher training
provider. You will receive more information on the arrangements and how this is distributed prior to the
start of your course.

If you are awarded a bursary of up to £12,000 and study full-time:

       you will receive the bursary in 10 equal monthly instalments from October to July
       you are advised to confirm the actual payment schedule with your initial teacher training (ITT)
        provider

Funding of £15,000 or higher
If you are awarded a bursary of £15,000 or over, or a scholarship of £27,500 or £30,000, and study full-
time:

       you will receive 10 equal monthly instalments from October to July, but with additional payments
        in February and July, or in the final month of your course
       you will need to be on the course on 1 January to receive the first additional payment in February,
        and will need to complete the course to receive the second additional payment at the end of your
        course
       you are advised to confirm the actual payment schedule with your initial teacher training (ITT)
        provider

       £20,000: £1,500 each month
       £25,000: £2,000 each month

17 | P a g e
These payments are not taxable, but might be included as part of your capital income if you receive state
benefits. Contact your local benefits office to find out how this might affect your situation.

If you’re on a part-time course, you may be paid in larger instalments throughout its duration, but no more
than 50% of the bursary will be paid in one go. For larger bursary awards, instalments will be subject to
weighting based on attendance and completion of the course, as with the larger awards for full-time
trainees.

Tuition fee loan
If you are on a postgraduate teacher training course which is not salaried, you will have to pay tuition fees.
These are set at £9,000 for school direct through our providers – please contact us directly for school
direct salaried costs.

Home and EU students may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees charged. This

No trainee will need to pay the cost of tuition charges up front. They will only pay once they are in full-
time employment and earning above £21,000.

You can calculate an estimate of your loan repayments on the GOV.UK website

Eligibility
Your tuition fees and any other bursary or financial support depend on your status as a home, European
Union (EU) or overseas student. Find out more information about EUor overseas status. All
bursaries are subject to conditions and you are not guaranteed funding, but you may be eligible for financial
support.

Student loan for maintenance
Home students in England may also be eligible for a student maintenance loan to help towards
accommodation and other living costs. This is available through Student Finance England. More information
on the student loan for maintenance can be found on the GOV.UK website

Maintenance grant
Home students in England may also be eligible for a non-repayable maintenance grant. This grant will be
means tested and you can apply through Student Finance England. More details about these grants and the
funding arrangements for trainees from the EU can be found on the GOV.UK website

School Direct Salaried
School Direct (salaried) courses normally take a year to complete, and are a great choice if you want to stay
