Haslingden High School is the lead school in our School Direct alliance based in East Lancashire. Working in partnership with The University of Cumbria we offer an exciting, school-based approach to Initial Teacher Training.
As a trainee on the School Direct programme you will spend most of your time in school, supported by experienced mentors and staff who are excellent classroom practitioners. Most of the course content will be delivered by expert teachers in our partner schools but there will be visits to the University of Cumbria (Lancaster campus) for assignment support and subject pedagogy days. Trainees will undertake two placements in different schools within the alliance.
There may also be opportunities to gain further experience in other partner schools and settings depending on individual training needs and areas of interest. Haslingden High School is the East Lancashire Apple Regional Training Centre (RTC) and therefore you will also have the opportunity to see how Apple technologies can be used to enhance teaching and learning in the classroom.
