Initial Teacher Training

We are very proud to be part of the OAKS partnerships offering excellent initial teacher training (ITT), based at Keele University, Newcastle under Lyme. The PGCE and School Direct routes into teaching follow the same programme as each other, they have two outcome awards. QTS registration is recommended by The OAKS and the PGCE is awarded by Keele University.

All applications for PGCE/School Direct/School Direct Salaried must be made via an online application through UCAS Teacher Training.
