Do you want to train ‘on the job’? Come to Myton and join the School Direct Programme where you can be fully immersed in the life of a school from day one.

TandL Team

We can offer you:

  1. Outstanding mentors and full support throughout your teacher training.
  2. Bespoke weekly pedagogical and subject training in school.
  3. A second placement in a contrasting school environment.

Myton School is committed to recruiting and training enthusiastic individuals who are passionate about becoming outstanding teachers. We take trainees from a number of different providers but enjoy a particularly close relationship with our strategic partners: the University of Worcester and the University of Warwick. Our Initial Teacher Training provision was identified as ‘outstanding’ by Warwick University.

We are a dedicated and supportive team, able to assist from application to NQT year. During your training you will have specialist help from our mentors to develop your practical skills in the classroom and your theoretical understanding.

“Great professional mentor, positive, supportive atmosphere where I felt really able to stretch myself.” – A former PGCE student

Myton School is part of two partnerships: The Griffin Teaching School (Lawrence Sheriff School and Kenilworth School).

We encourage people to gain experience by utilising the School Experience programme. You will be able to observe lessons in the curriculum area in which you wish to teach.  Please apply via the Get Into Teaching website.

Who is eligible?

To be eligible, you will need both of the following:

  • A UK undergraduate degree or recognised equivalent qualification.
  • A standard equivalent to a grade C in the GCSE examinations in English and mathematics, or equivalent.

If you studied outside of the UK, you should visit the National Academic Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) to find out whether your qualifications are of an equivalent level to UK GCSEs, A levels and an undergraduate degree.

Additionally, all candidates are required to have passed the literacy and numeracy tests before starting teacher training.  You can book these tests and access practice materials  on the Department for Education website.

For more information on your eligibility, please visit the Get Into Teaching website.

Information for International Students

If you’re an international student you may need to check with a University International Office who can advise on whether you have the necessary Visa permissions to study with us. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept students onto School Direct programmes who hold a Tier 4 Visa.

You will be sent topic/class details beforehand. There will also be a number of documents to be checked and forms to be completed.
