School Direct


Shiremoor Primary School 


Come and join our team of outstanding teachers! Our School Direct Programme not only gives you Qualified Teacher Status but a future of endless opportunities here in the North East.


How to Apply


Shiremoor Primary School is currently recruiting trainees for 2021-22. Having been part of an innovative Initial Teacher Training programme for the past eight years, we are recruiting again for trainees for unsalaried placements across three authorities in the region. The schools offer a vast array of expertise and as a result, we will be offering an exciting and multi-faceted school-based training programme.



We work alongside Northumbria University to provide this year-long course which allows trainees to gain QTS and PGCE.


Successful applicants will spend a year working in one of the alliance schools alongside an experienced mentor. A placement in a second school is arranged ensuring all trainees have experience in two different settings and an alternative Key Stage.
