School Direct is a route into teaching featuring a school-centred approach. As a School Direct (salaried) trainee, you will be employed in a school while you train and will receive a salary from your school (the amount paid is linked to the unqualified teacher pay scale which may be enhanced by schools for some subject areas). The school will also cover the cost of your training to become a qualified teacher.
