An information event was held at the Priory School Shrewsbury on Thursday 5th May 2016 from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm with presenters from North Shropshire Teaching School Alliance,  Salop Teaching School Alliance, Darwin Teaching School Alliance and Chester University who talked to delegates about provider information, the application process and the roles of the alliances followed by a question and answer session.  Presentations from the event can be found on the School Direct page of our website.

School Direct is a great new way to gain the skills you need to become a teacher. This school-led path involves some of the country’s best schools, and you could be selected by the alliance partnership and be eligible for bursaries.

Comments from the last event were very positive:-

‘Nice atmosphere, relaxed feeling, yet still organised and well presented’

‘Presentation was faultless, extremely informative and helpful’

‘I have left the session with a considerably greater level of knowledge!  Good pace of delivery, humour etc.  Good session.’


‘Very useful, I will certainly be using the information and resources provided – thank you.’
