About Us

Are you interested in training to teach in a secondary school? If so, consider us.

Wigan and West Lancashire Catholic School Direct
We believe in nurturing the whole child, to grow in faith and realise their full potential.

We believe that you will have the best start in your teaching career by choosing to train within our supportive Catholic community.
Teachers trained by us make a positive difference to children’s lives.
School Direct is a teacher training programme which puts schools/colleges at the heart of the process.

Your training will be in excellent Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Liverpool and will lead to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
Our HE partner, Liverpool Hope University, works with us to provide additional high quality training which leads to the Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE).

Our schools provide an on-going programme of Continuing Professional Development to enhance your career.

We welcome enquiries and applications from committed graduates who wish to join us in shaping Catholic education in the future.

Having faith in our children’s future.
