South Cumbria School Direct is part of Furness Education Trust, based at Furness Academy, Barrow-in-Furness and works in close collaboration with the Ripley TSA SCITT in Lancaster.
We offer 12 month Primary and Secondary programmes which give you PGCE and recommendation for QTS. The PGCE includes 60 credits at Master’s level.
As a trainee teacher on the South Cumbria School Direct Programmes you will spend a much greater proportion of time in school than you would on a traditional PGCE programme and the curriculum will be delivered by school expert practitioners working across our partnership. This will facilitate much stronger links between theory and practice, enabling you to apply pedagogical knowledge in the classroom and reflect upon it more immediately.
