Schools Direct Recruitment

Schools Direct 2017/18

Over the past five years or so we have successfully trained many students to become teachers through the Schools Direct Programme in partnership with the IOE /UCL. Most years we have been able to offer between 5 and 10 places in our schools in partnership with the Brindishe Schools.

This year it has been much more difficult to secure the number of places we would like to offer and the number of places offered nationally is also reduced. In the next round (2017-2018) we will be offering just 3 Schools Direct Places in Brindishe Schools  for Sept 2017. These will be organised in partnership with the Teaching Schools in Lewisham (ETAL) and the Bromley Schools’ Collegiate. There will be no training places for Schools Direct at John Ball School in 17/18.
