Teach Manchester School Direct Open Evening (Secondary)
Wed 19 April 2017, 16:30 – 18:00 BST
Teach Manchester is committed to the vision of outstanding education for all children in every school. Join us as a trainee teacher to begin your career and become a part of this vision.
Teach Manchester offers a School Direct Route of Initial Teacher Training. School Direct is a year long postgraduate route to qualified teacher status which is led by a school alliance. In this route your training programme is designed by the alliance to help you meet the requirements for the award of Qualified Teacher Status and a 60 Masters Credit postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE).
Teach Manchester’s School Direct programme is designed to develop the skills our schools are looking for in a newly qualified teacher (NQT). We have obtained a 100% employment rate for our trainees in the September after graduation.
You’ll become a part of your main placement school team from September. You will receive intensive support from our experienced team of teachers and mentors from the beginning of your placement. You’ll build your skills through observation, reflection, and attendance at both alliance led training sessions and university led sessions. This will support you in building your skill set towards teaching whole lessons, and then onto a significant timetable by the end of the year.
Come along to our drop in session to find out more about routes into teaching, the application process and the secondary initial teacher training offered by Teach Manchester.
Those interested in Primary sessions; or who can't make this session but would like to attend a future session can join our mailing list here to be notified when further events are scheduled: http://eepurl.com/cCiIt1

Is there parking at the venue?
St Peter's has a car park which is accessed from Kirkmanshulme Lane. We anticipate that there will be space for most visitors, however this cannot be guaranteed. Street parking in the immediate vicinity of the school is without restriction.
Can I get there by Public Transport?
St Peter's is a short walk from Belle Vue Train Station. It can also be accessed by bus from Stockport Road (the A6) such as the 192 from Piccadilly to Stockport Route. Alternatively, it is a short walk from the buses which run down Hyde Road (A57) such as the 201, 203.
