South Croydon Learning Alliance: School Direct Programme

Our School Direct Alliance is one that allows prospective teachers to gain an opportunity to train in a dynamic educational setting. Our Alliance is located across four successful comprehensive secondary schools, which are working in partnership to help produce high quality and well trained teachers of the future. Our School Direct Alliance is coordinated through Riddlesdown Collegiate in Purley, Surrey, which is a Multi Academy Trust. Our Alliance includes a variety of partner schools including those in mainstream; across the 11-19 age range, as well as Faith Schools and specialist behaviour schools.

We are an innovative and growing partnership, which is continually expanding and developing further links with schools in the wider community. We invest greatly in the professional development of all our staff and those who choose to train alongside us; to ensure that the quality of our work remains consistently high and the Alliance continues to be at the forefront of pedagogical practice. For 2017-2018, we are seeking to fill a large number of places across four of our schools and we are working with three different university providers to achieve this (The University of Roehampton, e-Qualitas, and Kings College London).

Training within our Alliance gives you the unique opportunity to experience a broad range of teaching environments, with all our schools providing the highest quality teaching and learning for their students and the trainees they are supporting and developing. Within the Alliance there are extensive opportunities for future professional leadership positions and development; including an excellent Masters Programme, which we run in connection with St Mary's University, Twickenham.

There are currently four secondary schools within the South Croydon Learning Alliance who offer School Direct placements and a further two schools who offer opportunities for school experiences and observations. Please visit their websites to find out more:

* Riddlesdown Collegiate (Lead School)
