“The North Sefton Coastal Teaching School’s Alliance was vital in terms of my personal progress for my professional development; I knew from the outset which schools I was going to be placed in, and therefore I was in contact with my schools whilst other PGCE students were still waiting to hear where they were going to be placed.
The Coastal Alliance provided myself with key training, extra support when needed and brilliant schools to train in. I would highly recommend the School Direct Route over other teacher training courses. You have all the benefits of a PGCE course, whilst also having the great working relationship with the schools within the cluster. I am currently working in an excellent school within the Coastal Alliance: a school that I trained in during my PGCE.”
